Rejoice, rejoice!
Christ is born
Of the Virgin Mary
It is now the time of grace
That we have desired
Let us sing songs of joy
Let us give devotion
God was made man
And nature marvels
The world was renewed
By Christ who is King.
The closed gate of Ezekiel
Has been passed through
From where the light rises
Salvation is found
Therefore let our assembly now sing
Sing the Psalms to purify us
Let it praise the Lord.

Iterum dico: Gaudete!

Philippians 4: 4-6
Rejoice in the Lord always: again I say, rejoice. Let your modesty be known to all men: for the Lord is nigh. Be nothing solicitous: but in every thing by prayer let your petitions be made known to God. – (Ps. 84. 2). Lord, Thou hast blessed Thy land: Thou hast turned away the captivity of Jacob. V.: Glory to the Father . . . – Rejoice in the Lord always . . .

Gaudéte in Dómino semper: íterum dico gaudéte: Modéstia vestra nota sit ómnibus homínibus; Dóminus enim prope est: nihil sollíciti sitis: sed in omni oratióne petitiónes vestræ innotéscant apud Deum. Ps. Benedixísti, Dómine, terram tuam: avertísti captivitátem Jacob. Glória Patri, et Fílio, et Spirítui Sancto. Sicut erat in princípio, et nunc, et semper, et in sæcula sæculórum. Amen.
Gaudete in Domino semper…
