Original Text

Resonet in laudibus,
cum jucundis plausibus.
Sion confidelibus
apparuit quem genuit Maria.

Pueri concinite
nato regi psalite,
voce pia dicite
apparuit quem genuit Maria.

Hodie apparuit in Israel,
sunt impleta quæ prædixit Gabriel.
Eia, eia.
Virgo Deum genuit,
quod divina voluit clementia.

English Translation

Let praises ring out
and joyful acclaim:
the one whom Mary bore has appeared
to the faithful in Zion.

Let all sing together to the boy,
strike the harp for the newborn king,
speak with a holy voice:
he has appeared whom Mary bore.

This day appreared in Israel,
what Gabriel foretold has been fulfilled.
Eia, eia,
A virgin has given birth to God,
as He wished in His divine mercy.

This piece was performed by the SFBC in In Dulci Jubilo! A Candlelight Christmas Concert on December 6, 1996.
