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: 

Who 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 whom the mother gave birth. Her name ist eternal and she experienced the joys of a mother while keeping the honour of virginity. And none is seen like her before, nor there will be any after her.
