Lyrics

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

Tempus adest gratiae, hoc quod optabamus
Carmina laetitiae devote redamus

Deus homo factus est natura mirante
Mundus renovatus est a Christo regnante

Ezechielis porta clausa per transitur
Unde lux est orta salus invenitur

Ergo nostra cantio psallat iam in lustro
Benedicat domino salus regi nostro

Translation – Rejoice

Refrain
Rejoice, rejoice! Christ is born
Of the Virgin Mary, rejoice!
Rejoice, rejoice! Christ is born
Of the Virgin Mary, rejoice!

The time of grace has come, what we have wished for;
Songs of joy, let us give back faithfully. Refrain

God has become man, with nature marveling,
The world has been renewed by the reigning Christ. Refrain

The closed gate of Ezekiel is passed through,
Whence the light is risen, salvation has been found. Refrain

Therefore, let our preaching now sing in brightness
Let it bless the Lord, greeting to our King. Refrain
