262. O Come, All Ye Faithful / Adéste Fidéles

1 O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant.
O come ye, O come ye to Bethlehem;
Come and behold him, born the King of angels;

O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him, Christ, the Lord!

2 God of God, Light of Light,
Lo! He comes forth from the Virgin's womb.
Our very God, begotten not created, [Refrain]

3 Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of heav'n above!
Glory to God, all glory in the highest; [Refrain]

4 Yea, Lord, we greet thee, born this happy morning,
Jesus, to thee be all glory giv'n;
Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing; [Refrain]

1 Adéste fidéles, laeti, triumphántes,
Veníte, veníte in Béthlehem.
Natum vidéte, Regem angelórum.

Veníte adorémus,
veníte adorémus,
Veníte adorémus Dóminum.

2 Deum de Deo, Lumen de Lúmine
Gestant puéllae víscera.
Deum verum, génitum, non factum. [Refrain]

3 Cantet nunc io, chorus angelórum,
Cantet nunc aula caeléstium.
Glória, glória in excélsis Deo. [Refrain]

4 Ergo qui natus Die hodiérna,
Jesu tibi sit glória.
Patris aeterni verbum caro factum. [Refrain]
