Carol – Of the Father’s love begotten – Lyrics
Of the Father’s love begotten,
At His Word the worlds were framèd;
Oh, that birth forever blessed,
O ye heights of heaven, adore Him;
Christ, to Thee with God the Father,
Corde natus ex parentis
Ipse iussit et creata,
Corporis formam caduci,
O beatus ortus ille,
Psallat altitudo caeli,
Ecce, quem vates vetustis
Macte iudex mortuorum,
Te senes et te iuventus,
Tibi, Christe, sit cum Patre
