'Twas in the moon of wintertime when all the birds had fled,
That mighty Gitchi Manitou sent angel choirs instead.
Before their light the stars grew dim,
and wond'ring hunters heard the hymn:
Jesus, your King, is born; Jesus is born! In excelsis gloria!

Within the lodge of broken bark, the tender Babe was found;
A ragged robe of rabbit skin enwrapped His beauty round. 
But as the hunter braves drew nigh,
the angel song rang loud and high:
Jesus, your King, is born; Jesus is born! In excelsis gloria!

O children of the forest free, O sons of Manitou,
The Holy Child of earth and heaven is born today for you.
Come kneel before the radiant Boy who brings you beauty, peace and joy:
Jesus, your King is born; Jesus is born! In excelsis gloria!
In excelsis gloria.
