Here’s a Taste of what is to come - a Joyful sound announcing the Word becoming Flesh, dwelling in our midst. Enjoy, and may the remaining days of  advent waiting be rooted in joyful hope.

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

Tempus adest gratiæ
Hoc quod optabamus,
Carmina lætitiæ
Devote reddamus.

Deus homo factus est
Natura mirante,
Mundus renovatus est
A Christo regnante.

Ezechielis porta
Clausa pertransitur,
Unde lux est orta
Salus invenitur.

Ergo nostra concio
Psallat iam in lustro;
Benedicat Domino:
Salus Regi nostro.

English Translation 

Rejoice, rejoice! Christ has born
(Out) Of the Virgin Mary – rejoice!

The time of grace has come—
what we have wished for,
songs of joy
Let us give back faithfully.

God has become man,
(With) nature marvelling,
The world has been renewed
By Christ (who is) reigning.

The closed gate of Ezekiel
Is passed through,
Whence the light is raised,
Salvation is found.

Therefore, let our preaching
Now sing in brightness
Let it give praise to the Lord:
Greeting to our King.
