SATB Chorus

Difficulty: Medium

Corde Natus ex Parentis (Of the Father's Love Begotten) is a Christmas carol based on the poem Corde Natus by Aurelius Prudentius.

Latin Text:

Corde natus ex parentis
Ante mundi exordium
A et O cognominatus,
ipse fons et clausula
Ominum quae sunt, fuerunt,
Quaequae post futura sunt.
Saeculorum saeculis.

English Translation:

Of the Father's heart begotten,
Ere the world from chaos rose,
He is Alpha, from that Fountain
All that is and hath been flows;
He is Omega, of all things,
Yet to come the mystic Close,
Evermore and evermore.
