O magnum mysterium,

et admirabile sacramentum,

ut animalia viderent Dominum natum,

iacentem in praesepio!

Beata Virgo,

cujus viscera meruerunt portare

Dominum Jesum Christum.



English translation:

O great mystery,

and wonderful sacrament,

that animals should see the newborn Lord,

lying in a manger!

Blessed is the virgin

whose womb was worthy to bear

the Lord, Jesus Christ.
