Pueri concinite

Pueri concinite
Nato regi psallite
Voce pia dicite
Apparuit quem genuit Maria
Sum implenta quae praedixit Gabriel
Eia, Eia, virgo Deum genuit
Quem divina voluit clementia
Hodie apparuit
Apparuit in Israel
Ex Maria virgine natus est Rex!

English translation

Sing together, children,
sing songs to the newborn King;
in pious tones, say:
He who was born of Mary appears.
Now we see fulfilled the word of Gabriel:
Eya, eya! The Virgin has given birth to God,
As the divine mercy willed.
Today appears,
Appears in Israel.
To the Virgin Mary is born the King!
