Full text: 

Quem vidistis pastores? Dicite, annuntiate nobis. Quis apparuit in terris? In choro angelorum natum vidimus salvatorem dominum quem genuit puerpera cui nomen aeternum et gaudia matris habens cum virginitatis honore. Nec primam similem visa est nec habere sequentem.

English translation: 

Whom did you see, shepherds? Say, tell us. Who has appeared on earth? We saw the son in the choir of angels, Saviour and Lord. He who the mother gave birth to, who, having the eternal name and joys of a mother, yet is seen with the honour of virginity, having none like her before, nor any following.
