MAKE WE JOY NOW IN THIS FEST

Make we joy now in this Fest,
On which Christ is born.

The only begotten of the Father

Is through a maiden come to us:
Sing we of Him and say, 'Welcome,'
Come Redeemer of the nations.

Make we joy now in this Fest,
On which Christ was born.

Let every age acknowledge (that)

A bright star made three kings to come,
Him for to seek with their presents,
The celestial word proceeding.

Make we joy now in this Fest,
On which Christ was born.

From where the sun rises,

So mighty a Lord is none as He;
And to our kind He hath Him knit,
Which our father Adam defiled.

Make we joy now in this Pest,
On which Christ is born.

Mary conceived in her womb,

The Holy Ghost was aye her with,
Of her in Bethlem born He is,
Sharing in the light of His Father.

Make we joy now in this Fest,
On which Christ is born.

O light of the blessed Trinity,

He lay between an ox and ass,
Beside His mother maiden free,
Glory to thee, O Lord.

Make we joy now in this Fest,

On which Christ is born.
