Gloria in excelsis Deo! (That's about the extent of my Latin.) Merry Christmas to all.

I shouldn't say it [as son of two Classicists with a moderate amount of Latin and Greek under my belt], but you do not need a whole lot more than that.

Interesting that the title of your topic is in Latin, but the song is in German.
Two more Latin songs that English speakers would be blessed to add to their songbag:
Adeste Fidelis
Dona Nobis Pacem

Biblical Greek has crept into our language: Christ comes from Greek for anointed.

Amen and Hallelujah: two Hebrew words most English-speaking Christians use.

Happy Christ's birthday everyone. May we all honor the King this day.

And I learned this Christmas season that the X in Xmas actually comes from the Greek word Χριστός (Christos), so Xmas is just a shortened form of Christmas. No one's taking the Christ out of Christmas!

Thanks Maverick. I always assumed it was to shorten the word Christmas.

And the "mas" in Christmas is short for "mass", referring to the body of Christ, who is present in our worship.
Christ can no more be taken out of Christmas than white on rice. He will not forsake us.
What does concern me is the mas(s) divorced from Christmas, that is the people forsaking their God at Christmas and any time.
