1 In Bethlehem, that noble place
As by the Prophet said it was
Of the Virgin Mary, filled with grace
Salvator mundi natus est.

Refrain:
Be we merry in this feast,
In quo Salvator natus est.

2 On Christmas night an Angel told
The shepherds watching by their fold,
In Bethlehem, full nigh the weld,
"Salvator mundi natus est." [Refrain]

3 The shepherds were encompassed right,
About them shone a glorious light,
"Dread ye naught," said the Angel bright,
"Salvator mundi natus est." [Refrain]

4 "No cause have ye to be afraid,
For why? this day is Jesus laid
On Mary's lap, that gentle maid:"
"Salvator mundi natus est." [Refrain]

5 "And thus in faith find Him ye shall
Laid poorly in an ox's stall."
The shepherds then lauded God all,
"Quia Salvator natus est." [Refrain]
