Let the heavens rejoice and let the earth be glad!
The Lamb of God has been born on earth,
Granting redemption to the world
The word, who rests in the bosom of the Father,
Has come forth without seed from the virgin.
The wise men were struck with amazement,
Seeing him born as an infant in Bethlehem.
Let all creation glorify Him!
Kontakion of the Nativity
Today the Virgin gives birth to the Transcendent One,
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!
