Magnum nomen domini Emmanuel, quod annuntiavit Gabriel virgini Mariae.

Quando venit ergo sacri plenitudo temporis,

Atque ventre virginali caro factus prodiit.

Great is the name of the Lord, Emmanuel, that Gabriel announced to the virgin Mary.

When indeed the fullness of the holy time came, He was sent from the fortress of the Father, the creator of the world was born and He, who assumed the human flesh, came forth from a virginal womb.
