O magnum mysterium,
et admirabile sacramentum,
ut animalia viderunt Dominum natum,
jacentem in praesepio!
O Beata Virgo,
cujus viscera meruerunt portare
Dominum Iesum Christum.

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.
