Ece Nomen Domini JPEG

Behold, the name of the Lord Emmanuel,
which was announced by Gabriel,
today has appeared in Israel:
of the Virgin Mary was born the King.
O joy! A Virgin has brought forth God,
as the divine clemency has willed.
Born in Bethlehem, seen in Jerusalem,
and honored in all the earth is the king of Israel.
