The translation that came with it I from "A Christmas Book", published in 1928,
by DB
Wyndham Lewis and GC Heseltine is as follows:

O mortal men, take courage! Jesus is born.
Now the reign of the Enemy is destroyed
Hear ye no more what he whispers to your souls.
Jesus is born.

Listen to the angels in the skies!
Do not now reject what they proclaim to you!
Mary has borne the Greta Spirit, as they foretell.
Jesus is born.

Now let us all come and prey to Him,
Adore him! He has granted our desire.
Hear him! He wishes you to be good.
Jesus is born!

If there are any Huron speakers, maybe they could say which translation is more
written by Jean de Brebeuf. (The "8" is not a misprint - it's the
way of writing a sound that we don't exactly have in English - "The Hurons have
no M. "8arie"= "Ouarie" = "Marie"):
