Resonet in laudibus
cum iucundis plausibus
Sion cum fidelibus
apparuit quem genuit Maria
Sunt impleta quæ prædixit Gabriel
Eia, eia, virgo Deum genuit
quem divina voluit clementia
Hodie apparuit in Israel
ex Maria virgine est natus Rex
Magnum nomen Domini Emmanuel
quod annunciatum est per Gabriel

Let Sion with the faithful
sound praises
with joyous applause
the child born of Mary has appeared
What Gabriel foretold has been fulfilled
Eia, eia, a virgin has given birth to God
as the divine mercy willed
Today he has appeared in Israel
a king has been born from the virgin Mary
Great is the name of the Lord Emmanuel
as was announced by Gabriel
