Kinder swijcht, so mooch di horen


Kinder swijcht so mooch di horen
Ecce mundis gaudia
Hoe heer Jesus is gheboren
In te sunt solemnia
O virgo Maria
Dei plena gracia!

English lyrics

1. Children sing a carol splendid
Ecce mundis gaudia
On this morning Christ descended
In te sunt solemnia
O virgo Maria
Dei plena gracia!

2. In the midnight to a maiden…
Gabriel with good news laden…

3. Came and gave her friendly greeting…
God’s especial business trusting…

4. Said His Son would be her baby…
Till, she said, how such things may be…

5. Then the angel spoke a wonder…
God would keep her maid and mother…

6. So she bore the Heavenly Stranger…
So she laid Him in a manger…
