|O magnum mysterium,
et admirabile sacramentum
ut animalia viderent Dominum
natum, jacentem in præsepio!
Beata Virgo, cujus viscera
Ave, Maria, gratia plena.
|O great mystery,
and wonderful sacrament,
that animals should see the new-
born Lord, lying in their manger!
Blessed is the Virgin whose womb
was worthy to bear the
Lord Jesus Christ.
Hail, Mary, full of grace.
The Lord is with you.
