after the Medieval carol

Gaudate! Christus natus, ex Maria Virgine; Gaudate!
Tempus ad est gratiae, Hoc quod optabamus;
Carmina laeticiae devote reddamus.
Deus homo factus est, Natura mirante;
Mundus renovatus est a Christo regnate.
Ezichielis porta clausa per transitur;
Unde lux est orta, salus invenitur.
Bene dicat domino; salus reginostro
Ergo nostra concio Psllat jam in lustro;
Benedicat Domino: Salus Regi nostro.
Rejoice! Christ is born of the Virgin Mary; Rejoice!
The time of grace has come for which we have prayed;
Let us devoutly sing songs of joy.
God is made man, while nature wonders;
The word is renewed by Christ the King.
The closed gate of Ezekiel has been passed through;
From where the Light has risen, salvation is found.
Therefore, let our assembly sing praises
now at this time of purification;
Let it bless the Lord; Greetings to our King
