Text heard on Sample:

Blessed be that Maid Marie;
Born he was of her body;
Very God ere time began,
Born in time the Son of Man.

Eya! Ihesus hodie
Natus est de Virgine

In a manger of an ass
Jesu lay and lulled was;
Born to die upon the Tree
Pro peccante homine.

Eya! Ihesus hodie...

Sweet and blissful was the song
Chanted of the Angel throng,
“Peace on earth, Alleluya!
In excelsis gloria!”

Eya! Ihesus hodie...

Fare three kings from far-off land,
Incense, gold and myrrh in hand;
In Bethlem the Babe they see,
Stelle ducti lumine.

Eya! Ihesus hodie...

Make we merry on this fest,
In quo Christus natus est.
On this Child I pray you call,
To assoil and save us all.

Eya! Ihesus hodie...

Traditional, c15th century
