about

In Ducli Jubilo is an old hymn, dating back into the Middle Ages. The lyrics are "macaronic", meaning that they are a mix of multiple languages. In this case, German and Latin.

lyrics

In dulci jubilo nun singet und seid froh
Unsers herzens Wonne leit in praesepio
Und leuchtet als die Sonne matris in gremio
Alpha es et O, Alpha es et O

O Jesu parvule nach dir ist mir so weh
Tröst mir mein Gemüte o puer optime
Durch alle deine Güte o princeps gloriae
Trahe me post te, trahe me post te

Translation:
In sweet rejoicing, now sing and be glad!
Our hearts' joy lies in the manger;
And he shines like the sun in his mother's lap.
You are the alpha and omega!

Oh tiny Jesus, after so much hurt
Console me in my soul, oh best boy,
By all your goodness, oh prince of glories
Bring me along with you!
