Mysterium Ecclesiæ
Hymnum Christo referimus,
Quem genuit Puerpera
Verbum Patris in Fílium.

 Sola in sexu femina
Electa es in saeculo,
Et meruísti Dominum
Sancto portáre in utero.

Vates antíqui temporis
Prædíxerat quod factum est:
Quia Virgo conciperet,
Et páreret Emmanuel.

Mysterium hoc magnum est,
Mariæ quod concessum est,
Ut Deum per quem omnia
Ex se videret progredi.

Pastores qui audierant
Cantari Deo gloriam
Cucurrerunt in Bethlehem
Natum videre Dominum.

Sic Magi ab ortu solis
Per sideris indicium
Portantes typum Gentium
Primi obtulerunt munera.

Rogemus ergo, Populi
Dei Matrem et Virginem
Ut ipsa nobis impetret
Pacem et indulgentiam.

Jesu, Tibi sit gloria
Qui natus es de Virgine
Cum Patre et almo Spiritu
In sempiterna saecula. Amen.
