O Magnum Mysterium



O magnum mysterium
et admirabile sacramentum
ut animalia viderent Dominum natum,
iacentem in praesepio:
O beata Virgo, cuius viscera meruerunt
portare Dominum Jesum Christum.
Alleluia.

O great mystery
and wonderful sacrament,
that beasts should see the new-born Lord
lying in a manger.
O blessed Virgin, whose womb was deemed worthy
to carry our Lord Jesus Christ.
Alleluia.
