Gaudete, Gaudete, Christus est natus
Ex Maria Virgine, Gaudete!

of the Virgin Mary, Rejoice!

VERSE 1.
Tempus adest gratiae
Hoc quod optabamus,
Carmina laetitiae
Devote reddamus.

The hour of grace
which we seek is here.
We offer with devotion
our songs of gladness.

VERSE 2.
Deus homo factus est,
Natura mirante,
Mundus renovatus est,
A Christo regnante.

God is made human,
a thing of wonder.
The world is renewed
by Christ’s reign.

VERSE 3.
Ezecheelis porta
Clausa pertransitur,
Undelux est orta
Salus invenitur.

Light has arisen.
Salvation is come,
Bursting the gates of death.

VERSE 4.
Ergo nostra contio
Psallat jam in lustro,
Benedicat domino,
Salus Regi nostro.

Our congregation lustily
rejoices now,
Giving blessing to God,
our Saviour and King.
