Text: Ecce virgo concipiet

Cristóbal de Morales (c.1550–1553)

Original Text English Translation
 
Ecce virgo concipiet,
et pariet filium:
Et vocabitur nomen ejus admirabilis,
Deus Fortis.
Super solium David,
et super regnum ejus
sedebit in aeternum,
Et vocabitur nomen ejus admirabilis,
Deus Fortis.
Behold! the Virgin will conceive,
and she will bear a son:
And his name will be called Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God!
Over the throne of David
and over his kingdom,
he will reign forever,
And his name will be called Wonderful Counselor,
Mighty God!
