Puer ende reyn, puer ende reyn,
Gedaelt uyt 's hemels vaders schoot,
Om ons te geven,

Groot ende cleyn, groot ende cleyn,
En maeckt u nu van sonden reyn,

[3] PRAISE TO THAT SWEET LITTLE CHILD

Praise to that sweet little child.
Pure and innocent, pure and innocent,
descended from his Heavenly Father's lap
To give to us
Life eternal
Through the Bread of Heaven.
Rejoice and be happy with a pure heart.
For unto us is born the Chosen One
Into the circles of this world.

Let all rejoice together,
Great and small, great and small,
And make ye now free from sin.
Unto us is born
The Chosen One
Into the circles of this world.
Rejoice and be happy etc.
