Translation by Kevin Siegfried
From the direction of the rising sun
To the ends of the earth,
Let us sing Christ the Lord,
Born of the Virgin Mary.
The blessed Creator of the world
Assumed a servant’s form,
So that, liberating flesh by flesh,
Whom he created might be saved.
A heavenly grace entered
The womb of the chaste mother,
And her womb bore
Secrets of which she knew not.
She gave birth to him whom Gabriel had foretold,
Whom John the Baptist,
Still enclosed in mother’s womb,
Had recognized with a leap.
Glory be to you, Lord Jesus,
You who were born of the Virgin,
With the Father and Holy Spirit,
For ever and ever. Amen.
