Your Sunday Hymn: O Magnum Mysterium

For the Feast of the Holy Family, O Magnum Mysterium from “Carols from Kings”, Christmas Eve 2009, performed by Kings College Choir:

Close your eyes and enjoy the rich harmonies.


Latin text

O magnum mysterium,

et admirabile sacramentum,

ut animalia viderent Dominum natum,

jacentem in praesepio!

Beata Virgo, cujus viscera meruerunt

portare Dominum Christum.Alleluia.

English translation

O great mystery,

and wonderful sacrament,

that animals should see the new-born Lord,

lying in a manger!

Blessed is the Virgin

whose womb was worthy to bear

Christ the Lord.
