Adeste Fidelis

  1. Adeste fidelis, laeti triumphantes
    Venite, venite in Bethlehem
    Natum videte, regem angelorum
    Venite adoremus, venite adoremus
    Venite adoremus, dominum.

  2. Cantet nunc io, chorus angelorum
    Cantet nunc aula caelestium
    Gloria, gloria in excelsis Deo
    Venite adoremus, venite adoremus
    Venite adoremus, dominum.

  3. Ergo qui natus, die hodierna
    Jesu, tibi sit gloria
    Patris aeterni, verbum caro factus
    Venite adoremus, venite adoremus
    Venite adoremus, dominum.


O Come, All Ye Faithful

words by John F. Wade, c1743
verses 1-3 & 6 translated from Latin to English by Frederick Oakeley, 1841
verses 4 & 5 translated by William T. Brooke (1848-1917)

  1. O come, all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant,
    O come ye, O come ye, to Bethlehem.
    Come and behold Him, born the King of angels;

    Refrain:
    O come, let us adore Him,
    O come, let us adore Him,
    O come, let us adore Him,
    Christ the Lord.

  2. True God of true God, Light from Light Eternal,
    Lo, He shuns not the Virgin's womb;
    Son of the Father, begotten, not created;

  3. Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation;
    O sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!
    Glory to God, all glory in the highest;

  4. See how the shepherds, summoned to His cradle,
    Leaving their flocks, draw nigh to gaze;
    We too will thither bend our joyful footsteps;

  5. Lo! star led chieftains, Magi, Christ adoring,
    Offer Him incense, gold, and myrrh;
    We to the Christ Child bring our hearts' oblations.

  6. Child, for us sinners poor and in the manger,
    We would embrace Thee, with love and awe;
    Who would not love Thee, loving us so dearly?

  7. Yea, Lord, we greet Thee, born this happy morning;
    Jesus, to Thee be glory given;
    Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing.
