On to the next verse of the Advent/Christmas hymn Intende, qui regis Israel.
Veni, redemptor gentium,
ostende partum virginis,
miretur omne saeculum,
talis decet partus Deo.
Come, redeemer of the nations,
show forth the virgin’s parturition;
let all the world stand in awe:
such a birth is fit for God. 1
