In dulci jubilo, sing Alleluia, lo

Representative Text

1 In dulci jubilo
Sing "Alleluia," lo!
See our Joy reclining
Here in praesepio!
Heaven's Sun is shining
Matris in gremio.
Alpha es et o!
Alpha es et o!

2 O Jesu parvule,
For thee I long alway!
Heal my heart and spirit,
O puer optime,
Through thy saving merit,
O priceps gloriae,
Trahe me post te!
Trahe me post te!

3 O Patris caritas!
O Nati lenitas!
Sin our soul was staining
Per nostra crimina,
Came the Christ regaining
Caelorum gaudia.
O that we were there!
O that we were there!

4 Ubi sunt gaudia?
Where else but here on high,
Where the angels, singing
Nova cantica,
Joyous bells are ringing
In Regis curia?
O that we were there!
O that we were there!
