Personent hodie

1) Personent hodie voces puerulae, laudantes jucunde
Qui nobis est natus, summo Deo datus,
Et de virgineo ventre procreatus.

2) In mundo nascitur, pannis involvitur praesepi ponitur
Stabulo brutorum, rector supernorum.
Perdidit spolia princeps infernorum.

3) Magi tres venerunt, parvulum inquirunt, parvulum inquirunt,
Stellulam sequendo, ipsum adorando,
Aurum, thus, et myrrham ei offerendo.

4) Omnes clericuli, pariter pueri, cantent ut angeli:
Advenisti mundo, laudes tibi fundo.
Ideo gloria in excelsis Deo.
