Adeste, fideles, laeti triumphantes, in Anno Domini MMXVIII

Latin Masses on New Year’s Day:

8AM: Low Mass at the Cathedral (St. Gregory the Great Latin Mass Chaplaincy).

Noon: Sung Mass at the Basilica in Lewiston (St. Gregory the Great Latin Mass Chaplaincy).

***

For whatever it’s worth, a literal rendering of Adeste, Fideles laeti triumphantes comes out as “Be present! Faithful, happy, victoriously marching ones.” I had help, of course, from Professor Hans-Friedrich Mueller but no matter.

Anyway, here’s the entire piece, and may God bless you all in this Christmas Season! See you in January.

Curate, ut valeatis!

1. Adeste Fideles laeti triumphantes,
Veníte, veníte in Bethlehem.
Natum vidéte, Regem Angelorum:

Veníte adoremus,
Veníte adoremus
Veníte adoremus Dóminum

2. Deum de Deo, lumen de lúmine,
gestant puellae viscera
Deum verum, genitum non factum:

Veníte adoremus,
Veníte adoremus
Veníte adoremus Dóminum

3. Cantet nunc io chorus Angelórum
cantet nunc aula caelestium:
Gloria in excelsis Deo:

Veníte adoremus,
Veníte adoremus
Veníte adoremus Dóminum

4. Ergo qui natus, die hodierna
Jesu, tibi sit glória
Patris aeterni Verbum caro factum:

Veníte adoremus,
Veníte adoremus
Veníte adoremus Dóminum
