341. O Come, All Ye Faithful

English--
1 O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant,
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold him, born the King of angels;

Refrain:
O come, let us adore him, O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him, Christ the Lord!

2 God of God, Light of Light,
Lo! He comes forth from the virgin's womb.
Our very God, begotten not created, (Refrain)

3 Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of heav'n above!
Glory to God, all glory in the highest; (Refrain)

4 Yea, Lord, we greet thee, born this happy morning,
Jesus, to thee be all glory giv'n;
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing; (Refrain)

Latin--
Adesté fidelés, laéti, triumphántes,
veníte, veníte in Béthlehem.
Natum vidéte, Regem angelorun.

Refrain:
Veníte adorémus, veníte adorémus,
veníta adorémus Dóminum.

Deum de Deo, lumen de lumine,
Gestant puéllae viscera.
Deum verum, Génitum, non factum. (Refrain)

Cantet nunc io, corus angelórum,
Cantet nunc aula caeléstium.
Glória, glória, in escélsis Deo. (Refrain)

Ergo qui natus Die hodiérna,
Jesu tibi sit glória.
Patris aeternae verbumcaro factum.
