Motet Translations

Jan Pieterzoon Sweelinck: "Ab Oriente"

Ab Oriente venerunt Magi,
In Bethlehem adorare Dominum,
Et apertis thesauris suis,
Pretiosa munera obtulerunt.
Aurum sicut Regi magno,
Thus, sicut Deo vero,
Mirrham sepulturae eius.
Alleluia.
Out of the east came the wise men,
To worship the Lord in Bethlehem;
And bringing their treasures
To offer precious gifts:
Gold, as for a great king,
Incense, as for a true God,
Myrrh for his sepulchre.
Hallelujah.
