Christ is Born! Glorify Him!
and the earth offers a cave to the Unapproachable One!
Angels with shepherds glorify Him,
the wise men journey with a star,
since for our sake the Eternal God is born as a Little Child!
(the Kontakion of the Nativity)
Thy Nativity, O Christ our God,
has shone to the world the light of wisdom;
for by it those who worshipped the stars were taught by a star,
to worship Thee the Sun of Righteousness,
and to know Thee, the Dayspring from on high;
O Lord, glory to Thee.
(The Troparion of the Nativity)
