Adeste Fidelis – 1751

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

Cantet nunc io, Chorus angelorum
Cantet nunc aula caelestium
Gloria, gloria, in excelsis Deo
Venite adoremus , venite adoremus
Venite adoremus Dominum.

Ergo qui natus, Die hodierna
Jesu, tibi sit gloria,
Patris aeterni, Verbum caro factus
Venite adoremus, Venite adoremus
Venite adoremus Dominum.


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,
Christ the Lord.

Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation,
Sing, all ye citizens of Heaven above!
Glory to God, glory in the highest:
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, 
Christ the Lord.

Literal translation from the Latin

Be present, ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant,
And hasten, and hasten to Bethlehem,
He lies in a Manger,
The Monarch of Angels

 O come let us adore Him! O come let us adore Him!
O Come let us adore the Lord with them.

Sing, Chorus of Angels,
Sing, in exultation,
Thro’ Heaven’s wide Court be your praises poured
To God in the Highest,
Be honor and Glory

Yea, Lord, we greet Thee,
Born this happy Morning!
For ever, O Christ, be Thy Name adored,
True Word of the Father,
Late in flesh appearing



About toritto

I was born during year four of the reign of Emperor Tiberius Claudius on the outskirts of the empire in Brooklyn. I married my high school sweetheart, the girl I took to the prom and we were together for forty years until her passing in 2004. We had four kids together and buried two together. I had a successful career in Corporate America (never got rich but made a living) and traveled the world. I am currently retired in the Tampa Bay metro area and live alone. One of my daughters is close by and one within a morning’s drive. They call their pops everyday. I try to write poetry (not very well), and about family. Occasionally I will try a historical piece relating to politics. :-)
