In dulci jubilo (Arr Pearsall)

Traditional - Old German tune

In dulci jubilo (Arr R.L. Pearsall)

In dulci jubilo In sweet rejoicing
Let us our homage shew;
Our heart's joy reclineth
In pręsepio (In the manger)
And like a bright star shineth
Matris in gremio. (In his mother's lap)
Alpha es et O. (You are Alpha and Omega)

O Jesu parvule! O tiny Jesus!
I yearn for thee alway!
Hear me, I beseech thee,
O Puer optime! O best of boys!
My prayer let it reach thee,
O Princeps glorię! (O Prince of glory!)
Trahe me post te! (Draw me after you!)

O Patris caritas, (O kindness of the Father)
O Nati lenitas! (O gentleness of the Son!)
Deep were we stained
Per nostra crimina; (Through our sins)
But thou hast for us gained
Cœlorum gaudia. (The joys of heaven)
O that we were there!

Ubi sunt gaudia, (where,Where can joys be found)
If that they be not there?
There are angels singing
Nova cantica, (New songs)
There the bells are ringing
In Regis curia: (at the King's court)
O that we were there!
