Original text and translations

Dies sanctificatus illuxit nobis; venite gentes, et adorate Dominum; quia hodie descendit lux magna in terris. Haec dies quam fecit Dominus; exultemus, et laetemur in ea. (Ps. 117:24; Matins Responsory, Circumcision)

English.png English translation

A day made holy dawns upon us; O come, all nations, and adore the Lord; for today a great light has descended upon earth. This is the day the Lord has made; let us be glad and rejoice in it.

translation by William Mahrt
