In dulci jubilo 2 (Pearsall)

IN DULCI JUBILO
R.L. Pearsall (german carol melody)

 Spartito

In dulci jubilo let us our homage show:
Our heart’s joy reclineth in praesepio,
And like a bright star shineth Matris in gremii
Alpha est O! A1pha est O.

O Jesu, parvule, My heart is sore for thee!
Here me I beseechthee o puer optime,
My prayer, let it reach thee! O princeps gloriae.
Trahe me post te! Trahe me post te!

O Patris caritas, O Nati lenitas!
Deeply were we stained per nostra crimina;
But thou has for us gained Coelorum gaudia.
O that we, that we were there! O that we were there!
Ubi sunt gaudia, where, If that they be not there?

There are angels singing, Nova cantica,
There the bells are ringing in Regis curia:
O that we, that we were there! O that we were there!
There are angels singing,
There the bells are ringing in Regis curia:
O that we, that we were there! O that we were there!
