The King’s Singers: ‘Guadete’


Gaudete! gaudete!
Christus est natus
Ex Maria virgine,

Tempus ad est gratiae,
hoc quod optabamus;
carmina laetitiae
devote redamus.

Deus homo factus est,
natura mirante;
mundus renovatus est
a Christo regnante.

Ezecaelis orta
clausa per transistur;
unde lux est orta,
salus invenitur.

Ergo nostra contio
psallat iam in lustro;
Benedicat Domino
salus regi nostro.


Rejoice, rejoice
Christ is born
Of the Virgin Mary

It is now the time of grace
That we have desired
Let us sing songs of joy
Let us give devotion

God was made man
And nature marvels
The world was renewed
By Christ who is King

The closed gate of Ezekiel
Has been passed through
From where the light rises
Salvation is found

Therefore let our assembly now sing,
Sing the Psalms to purify us
Let it praise the Lord
Greetings to our King.
