Text

Refrain:
Gaudete, gaudete! Christus est natus
Ex Maria virgine, gaudete!

Tempus adest gratiae
Hoc quod optabamus,
Carmina laetitiae
Devote reddamus.

Refrain

Deus homo factus est
Natura mirante,
Mundus renovatus est
A Christo regnante.

Refrain

Ezechielis porta
Clausa pertransitur,
Unde lux est orta
Salus invenitur.

Refrain

Ergo nostra cantio,
Psallat iam in lustro;
Benedicat Domino:
Salus Regi nostro.
