Here is the lyrics from Angie Wright who has the blog at abernthycourtyard.blogspot.com

Angie only gets to sing this song once or twice a year and it still holds true even though "it was translated using failed O level Latin" about 10 or more years ago,as she says when she introduces it.


Gaudete gaudete Christus est natus
ex Maria virgine gaudete             (x2)

Good news I bring so have no fear
A king is born to defend us
God knows how I'll cope this year
The shopping is horrendous.

Gaudete...

Kings and shepherds at the door
worshipping on bended knee
Shoppers fight upon the floor
for that final frozen turkey.

Gaudete...

In joy and peace we'll be well met
with time for heartfelt giving
Christmas on the internet
has made my life worth living.

Gaudete...

Come Christian folk throughout the land
and make your praising vocal
Then drink as long as you can stand
much longer at the local.

Gaudete...


Hope some others will enjoy it as much as I did.
