    One of my favourite carols:

    ADESTE FIDELES

    Adeste, fideles, laeti, triumphantes,
    Venite, venite in Bethlehem:
    Natum videte Regem Angelorum:

    Venite adoremus, venite adoremus
    Venite adoremus Dominum.

    En grege relicto, humiles ad cunas,
    vocatis pastores approperant.
    Et nos ovanti gradu festinemus.

    Venite adoremus, venite adoremus
    Venite adoremus Dominum.

    Aeterni Parentis splendorem aeternum,
    Velatum sub carne videbimus
    Delum Infantem, pannis involutum.

    Venite adoremus, venite adoremus
    Venite adoremus Dominum.

    Pro nobis egenum et foeno cubamtem,
    Piis foveamus amplexibus:
    Sic nos amantem quis nos redamaret?

    Venite adoremus, venite adoremus
    Venite adoremus Dominum.

    About the only Latin I know is semper fidelis. (Of course, there's carpe diem.)
