Lyrics CHRISTE REDEMPTOR
OMNIUM,
EX PATRE,
PATRIS UNICE,
SOLUS ANTE PRINCIPIUM
NATUS INEFFABILITER.

HUNC CAELUM,
TERRA,
HUNC MARE,
HUNC OMNE QUOD IN EIS EST,
AUCTOREM ADVENTUS TUI
LAUDAT EXSULTANS CANTICO.

SALUTIS AUCTOR,
RECOLE
QUOD NOSTRI
QUONDAM CORPORIS,
EX ILLIBATA VIRGINE
NASCENDO,
FORMAM SUMPSERIS.

HIC PRAESENS
TESTATUR DIES,
CURRENS PER ANNI CIRCULUM,
QUOD A SOLUS
SEDE PATRIS
MUNDI SALUS ADVENERIS.


(English lyrics):
JESU,
THE FATHER'S ONLY SON,
WHOSE DEATH
FOR ALL REDEMPTION WON,
BEFORE THE WORLDS,
OF GOD MOST HIGH,
BEGOTTEN ALL INEFFABLY.

WHENCE SKY,
AND STARS,
AND SEA'S ABYSS,
AND EARTH,
AND ALL THAT THEREIN IS,
SHALL STILL,
WITH LAUD
AND CAROL MEET,
THE AUTHOR
OF THINE ADVENT GREET.

SALVATION'S AUTHOR,
CALL TO MIND
HOW,
TAKING THE FORM
OF HUMANKIND,
BORN OF A VIRGIN
UNDEFILED,
THOU IN MAN'S FLESH
BECAMEST A CHILD.

THUS TESTIFIES
THE PRESENT DAY
THROUGH EVERY YEAR
IN LONG ARRAY,
THAT THOU,
SALVATION'S SOURCE ALONE
PROCEEDEST
FROM THE FATHER'S THRONE.
