Gaudete lyrics:

Rejoice, rejoice!
Christ is born
Of the Virgin Mary

It is now the time of grace
That we have desired
Let us sing songs of joy
Let us give devotion
God was made man
And nature marvels
The world was renewed
By Christ who is King.

The closed gate of Ezekiel
Has been passed through
From where the light rises
Salvation is found
Therefore let our assembly now sing
Sing the Psalms to purify us
Let it praise the Lord.

Gaudete, gaudete!
Christus est natus
Ex Maria virgine

Tempus adest gratiae
Hoc quod optibamus
Carmina laetitiae
Devote redamus
Deus homo factus est
Natura mirante
Mundus renovatus est
A Christo regnante.

Ezechielis porta
Clausa pertransitur
Unde lux est orta
Salus invenitur
Ergo nostra cantio
Psallat iam in lustro
Benedicat Domino
Salus Regi nostro.
