Grates nunc omnes reddamus Domino Deo
qui sua nativitate liberavit nos de diabolica potestate.
Huic oportet ut canamus cum angelis semper gloria in excelsis.

Now let us all give thanks to the Lord God,
Who, by his birth, freed us from the power of the devil.
We should sing with the angels forever: "Glory be to God on high".
