Adeste Fideles: O Come let us adore Him!


Adeste fideles, laeti, triumphantes,
Venite, venite in Bethlehem!
Natum videte Regem Angelorum!
Venite adoremus! Venite adoremus!
Venite adoremus Dominum!


Deum de Deo, Lumen de Lumine,
Gestant Puellae viscera,
Deum verum, genitum non factum.
Venite adoremus! etc.


Cantet nunc Io chorus angelorum,
Cantet nunc aula coelestium:
Gloria in excelsis Deo!
Venite adoremus! etc.


Ergo qui natus die hodierna,
Jesu, tibi sit gloria
Patris aeterni Verbum caro factum!
Venite adoremus etc.


Come, ye Faithful, in joy and triumph, to Bethlehem, and gaze on the new-born King of Angels! Come, let us adore the Lord!

The Virgin’s womb carries the God of God, the Light of Light, the true God that was born, not made. Come, let us adore the Lord!

Let the Angel choir now sing its hymns. Let the court of the Blessed give forth its Glory be to God in the highest! Come, let us adore the Lord!

To thee, O Jesus! who art this day born, be glory. Glory be to thee, O Word of the Eternal Father, that art now made Flesh! Come, let us adore!
