A virgin and Mother, a Queen celestial,
as this day maketh exemplification,
bare our Saviour Christ the Lord imperial
who suff'red death for our salvation,
it pleased him so to do for our transgression,
wherefore with meek devotion sing we in honour of his incarnation.
A maid immaculate, of all women the flower,
hath born Christ Jesu our Saviour.
