In dulci jubilo (Englisch)

1) In dulci jubilo!
Let us our homage show!
Our heart's joy reclineth
In præsepio!
And like a bright star shineth
Matris in gremio!
Alpha es et O!
Alpha es et O!
O patris charitas!
O nati lenitas,
Deeply were we stained
Per nostra crimina,
But thou hast for us gained
Cœlorum gaudia.
O that we were there,
O that we were there!
Ubisunt gaudia, where,
If that they be not there?
There are angels singing
Nova cantica;
There the bells are ringing,
In Regis curia.
O that we were there,
O that we were there!
There are angels singing,
There the bells are ringing,
In Regis curia.
O that we were there,
O that we were there!

2) O Jesu parvule!
My heart is sore for thee!
Hear me, I beseech thee,
O puer optime!
My prayer, let it reach thee,
O princeps gloriæ!
Trahe me post te!
Trahe me post te!
O patris charitas!
O nati lenitas,
Deeply were we stained
Per nostra crimina,
But thou hast for us gained
Cœlorum gaudia.
O that we were there,
O that we were there!
Ubisunt gaudia, where,
If that they be not there?
There are angels singing
Nova cantica;
There the bells are ringing,
In Regis curia.
O that we were there,
O that we were there!
There are angels singing,
There the bells are ringing,
In Regis curia.
O that we were there,
O that we were there!
