Quem pastores laudavere

Quem pastores laudavere

Published in 3 hymnals

Representative Text

Quen pastores laudavere,
Quibus Angeli dixere:
Absit vobis jam timere,
Natus est rex gloriae.

Nun Angelorum gloria
hominibus resplenduit in mundo,
novi partus gaudia
virgo mater produxit,
el sol verus in tenebris illuxit.

Ad quem Magi ambulabant,
Aurum, Thus, Myrrham portabant,
Immolabant haec sincere
Leoni victoriae.

Culpae datur hodie remission,
laetetur homo reus;
lux de coelo claruit,
pace jam reparata,
et genetrix permansit illibata.

Exultemus cum Marai
In caelesti Hierachia
Natum probant voce pia
Dulci cum melodia

Magnum nomen Domini Emanuel,
quod est: nobiscum Deus
Redentori Domino
redimt jubilemus,
hic est dies et annus jubilaeus.

Christo regi, Deo nato,
Per Mariam vobis dato,
Merit resonant vere
Laus, honor et gloria.

Pastores palam dicite in Bethlehem,
quem genuit Maria;
Laus, honor et gloria
sit Deo in excelsis,
hominibus pax bomae voluntatis.
