Laudes Deo dicam per saecula, qui me plasmavit in manu dextera atque redemit cruce purpurea sanguine nati.
Lectio Isaie prophetae,
In qua Christi lucida vatinicatur nativitas.
Haec dicit Dominus:
Pater, Filius Sanctus Spritus in quo sunt omnia condita, superna atque yma.
Populus gentiu qui ambulant in tenebris
Quem creasti; quem fraude sub dola hostis expulit Paradiso et captivatum secum traxit ad tatara
Vidit lucem magnam:
Fulserunt et immania nocte media pastoribus lumina.
Habitantibus in regione umbrae mortis, lux
Sempiterna et redemptis vera nostra
Orta est eis
O Stupenda nativitas;
Parvulus enim natus est nobis,
Magnus hic erit Iesus, Filius Dei
Datus est nobis
Ab arce summa praeictum sic erat.
Et factus est principatus super humerum eius,
Ut caelos regat atque arva
Et vocabitur nomen eius
Messias, Sother, Emmanuel, Sabaoth, AdonaÎ .
Qui creavit omnia,
Batatri claustra perimens deterrima
Pater futuri saeculi
Rex omnipotens et cuncta regens,
Hic et in aevum.
Multiplicabitur eius imperium
In Ierusalem, Iudaea sive Samaria
Et pacis non erit finis
Per saecula sempiterna
Super solium David et super regnum eius sedebit
Et regni meta sui non erit aliqua;
Et confirmet illud,
In fidei pignore
Et corroboret in iudicio et iustitia
Iudex cum venerit iudicare saecula
Illi debetur gloria, laus, et iubilatio
Et usque in sempiterna.
Ab ortu solis usque ad occiua, ad fines mundi orbis per climata luas creatori resonet congrua.
Amen dicant omnia.
I will sing praises to God, who formed me in his right hand, and has redeemed me by the cross and crimson blood of his Son.
A reading from the prophet Isiah
In which is clearly foretold the glorious nativity of Christ.
Thus saith the Lord:
Father, Son and Holy Ghost, in whom were all things established, above and below.
The people that walked in darkness
Whom you created; whom the enemy drove out of paradise by a cunning
trick, and drew captive with him down to hell.
Hath seen a great light:
And on the shepherds in deepest night has shone a bright light.
On them who live in the land of the shadow of death, light
Everlasting, and our true redemption
O wondrous birth;
For unto us a child is born.
He will be the great Jesus, Son of God
And a Son
Of the Father on high
Is given for us
From on high was it foretold.
And the power as been laid upon his shoulder,
That he might rule the heavens and the earth
And his name shall be called
Messiah, Saviour, Emmanuael, Lord of Hosts, AdonaÎ .
Scion of David
of God the Father.
Who created all things,
Who burst the gates of deeepest hell,
The everlasting Father
Almighty King and ruler of all
The Prince of peace.
Now and for ever
His Kingdom shall increase
In Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria,
And there will be no end to peace
For eternal ages.
He will sit upon the Throne of David, and rule his Kingdom.
And his reign shall have no end;
And he shall establish his reign
Upon a covenant of faith
And will strengthen it with wisdom and justice
When He comes to judge the world.
From this time
To Him be given glory, praise and thanksgiving
And to eternity.
From east to west, to the ends of the earth, and through every part of the world let the Creator's worthy praise resound.
Let all the people say Amen.

And all the words to the troped lesson, too
So as not to further confuse the previous post (which was already quite Byzantine enough), I here print all the words to the "troped lesson" from that post (here again is the mp3), in Latin and then English:
