Merry Christmas 2015

Merry Christmas to all on AQ. It is time for my annual posting of Adeste Fideles.

Adeste fideles, laeti triumphantes
Venite, venite in Bethlehem
Natum videte, Regem angelorum
Venite adoremus, venite adoremus
Venite adoremus, Dominum.

Deum de Deo, Lumen de Lumine,
Gestant puellae viscera,
Deum verum, Genitum non factum.
Venite adoremus, venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus Dominum

En grege relicto, Humiles ad cunas
Vocati pastores approperant.
Et nos ovanti, Gradu festinemus;
Venite adoremus, venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus Dominum

Cantet nunc Io chorus Angelorum;
Cantet nunc aula caelestium:
Gloria in excelsis Deo.
Venite adoremus, venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus Dominum.

Stella duce, Magi Christum adorantes,
Aurum, tus et myrrham dant munera.
Iesu infanti corda praebeamus;
Venite adoremus, venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus Dominum.

Aeterni Parrentis splendorem aeternum
Velatum sub carne videbimus:
Deum Infantem, pannis involutum,
Venite adoremus, venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus Dominum.

Pro nobis egenum et foeno cubantem
Piis foveamus amplexibus:
Sic nos amantem quis non redamaret?
Venite adoremus, venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus Dominum.

Ergo qui natus die hodierna,
Iesu, tibi sit gloria,
Patris aeterni Verbum caro factum.
Venite adoremus, venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus Dominum.
Adeste, fideles; adoremus Dominum
Adeste, fideles!

Complete English lyrics

O come all ye faithful
Joyful and triumphant
O come ye, o come ye to Bethlehem
Come and behold Him
Born the King of Angels
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
Christ the Lord

God of God
Light of Light,
Lo, he abhors not the Virgin’s womb;
Very God, begotten not created.
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
Christ the Lord

See how the shepherds,
Summoned to His cradle,
Leaving their flocks, draw nigh to gaze;
We too will thither
Bend our joyful footsteps;
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
Christ the Lord

Lo! star led chieftains,
Magi, Christ adoring,
Offer Him incense, gold, and myrrh;
We to the Christ Child bring our hearts’ oblations.
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
Christ the Lord

Splendor Immortal,
Son of God Eternal,
Now hidden in mortal flesh our eyes shall view.
See there the Infant, swaddling clothes enfold him.
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
Christ the Lord

Child, for us sinners
Poor and in the manger,
We would embrace Thee, with love and awe;
Who would not love Thee, loving us so dearly?
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
Christ the Lord

Sing! Choirs of Angels;
Sing in exaltation,
Sing, all ye citizens of heaven above;
Glory to God, in the highest
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
Christ the Lord

Yea, Lord, we greet thee!
Born this happy morning,
Jesus, to Thee be glory given;
Word of the Father,
Now in flesh appearing:
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
O come let us adore Him
Christ the Lord

  1. A Merry and Very Blessed Christmas to you dear Tim, and to all my AQ friends.
    God bless you!

  2. Merry Christmas to All and to All a Good Night!

  3. SANCTUARY STARS

    To all my friends
    I cannot see
    I’ll pray for you
    On bended knee

    On Christmas morn
    At stable’s side
    Where Christ the King
    Once did abide.

    Amidst the stench
    Of creatures low
    Yet star above
    Sent down its glow.

    First Sanctuary
    Light, bold thing,
    A beacon for
    The hidden King.

    And when bad men
    Snuff earthly light
    Stars are born
    To light the night.

    That’s why He put the stars
    So much
    Up in the sky
    Where men can’t touch.

    For candled flames
    Men can bring low,
    Sanctuary stars
    Won’t lose their glow.

    So at each stable
    Be not forlorn
    If bad men say
    “He was not born!”

    Look up O man
    The sky is flooded…
    With Sanctuary light
    Sanctuary-star studded!
