Lyrics of ‘In Dulci Jubilo’:
1. In dulci jubilo Let us our homage shew Our heart’s joy reclineth In praesepio And like a bright star shineth Matris in gremio Alpha es et O, Alpha es et O 2. O Jesu parvule I yearn for thee always Hear me, I beseech Thee O puer optime My praying let it reach Thee O princeps gloriae Trahe me post te Trahe me post te 3. O patris caritas O Nati lenitas Deeply were we stained Per nostra crimina But Thou for us hast gained Coelorum gaudia O that we were there O that we were there 4. Ubi sunt 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
