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

En grege relicto, humiles ad cunas
Vocati pastores approperant.
Et nos ovanti gradu festinemus:
Venite adoremus, venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus Dominum!

Aeterni Parentis splendorem aeternum
Velatum sub carne videbimus.
Deum infantem, pannis involutum,
Venite adoremus, venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus Dominum!

Pro nobis egenum et foeno cubantem
Piis foveamus amplexibus.
Sic nos amantem quis non redamaret?
Venite adoremus, venite adoremus,
Venite adoremus Dominum!

Deutsche Fassung

Herbei, o ihr Gläubigen, fröhlich triumphierend,
o kommet, o kommet nach Bethlehem!
Sehet das Kindlein, uns zum Heil geboren!
O lasset uns anbeten, o lasset uns anbeten,
o lasset uns anbeten den König, den Herrn!

Du König der Ehren, Herrscher der Heerscharen,
verschmähst nicht, zu ruhn in Marien Schoß,
du wahrer Gott von Ewigkeit geboren.
O lasset uns anbeten, o lasset uns anbeten,
o lasset uns anbeten den König, den Herrn!

Kommt, singet dem Herren, singt ihm, Engelchöre!
Frohlocket, frohlocket, ihr Seligen:
Ehre sei Gott im Himmel und auf Erden!
O lasset uns anbeten, o lasset uns anbeten,
o lasset uns anbeten den König, den Herrn!

Ja, dir, der du heute Mensch für uns geboren,
Herr Jesu, sei Ehre und Preis und Ruhm,
dir, fleischgewordnes Wort des ewgen Vaters!
O lasset uns anbeten, o lasset uns anbeten,
o lasset uns anbeten den König, den Herrn!
