In Dulci Jubilo


Melody:anon./trad. German C.14th
as recorder quartet for DDTT and SSDA/ATTB
Lyrics:anon./trad.
Origin:German



In dulci jubilo
Now sing with hearts aglow!
Our delight and pleasure
Lies in praesepio
Like sunshine is our treasure
Matris in gremio.
Alpha es et O!
Alpha es et O!

O Jesu, parvule,
For thee I long alway;
Comfort my heart's blindness,
O puer optime,
With all thy loving kindness,
O princeps gloriae.
Trahe me post te!
Trahe me post te!

O Patris caritas!
O Nati lenitas!
Deeply were we stain-ed
Per nostra crimina;
But thou for us has gain-ed
Coelorum gaudia.
O that we were there!
O that we were there!

Ubi sunt gaudia
In any place but there?
There are angels singing
(-) Nova cantica,
And there the bells are ringing
In Regis curia.
O that we were there!
O that we were there!
