"Gaudete" as written by Katharine Blake, Ruth Galloway and Dp,....
Gaudete, gaudete Christus est natus
Ex Maria virginae gaudete
Gaudete, gaudete Christus est natus
Ex Maria virginae gaudete

Tempus ad est gratiae hoc quod optabamus
Carmina laetitiae devote redamus

Gaudete, gaudete Christus est natus
Ex Maria virginae gaudete
Gaudete, gaudete Christus est natus
Ex Maria virginae gaudete

Deus homo factus est naturam eraute
Mundus renovatus est a christo regnante

Gaudete, gaudete Christus est natus
Ex Maria virginae gaudete
Gaudete, gaudete Christus est natus
Ex Maria virginae gaudete

Ezecheclis porta clausa per transitor
Unde lux est orta sallus inventior

Gaudete, gaudete Christus est natus
Ex Maria virginae gaudete
Gaudete, gaudete Christus est natus
Ex Maria virginae gaudete

Ergo nostra coutio psallat jam in lustro
Benedicat domino sallus regi nastro

Gaudete, gaudete Christus est natus
Ex Maria virginae gaudete
Gaudete, gaudete Christus est natus
Ex Maria virginae gaudete

    General CommentI'm not totally certain what this means. It's obviously in Latin of some kind. I speak a little bit of Latin (not enough to translate) and this sounds Latin. Plus, the Mediaeval Baebes sing old Medieval songs, and back then the Catholic church had a bunch of Latin songs in the church. (I think so...I'm not totally certain about the history.) "Christus est natus ex Maria Virgine" sounds something like it means "Christ is born of the Virgin Mary". I think but am not certain that "Mundus renovatus est, a Christo regnante" means something like "the world is changed, Christ reigns". (The Catholic Latin songs had religious meanings like this, of course.)

    I really don't know. I can't speak Latin very well, and I'm certainly not at the point where I'd be able to translate whole songs in it. (I'm only 14; most 14 year olds are neither able to translate Latin songs nor are listening to the Mediaeval Baebes.) But that's what I think it means. Basically it's the idea that the singer is happy because Jesus Christ is born and he's ruler of the earth.
