“Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and you shall call His name Immanuel.” (Isaiah 7:14)

On this day the virgin cometh to the cave to give birth to God, the Word ineffable, Who was before all the ages.

Dance for joy, O earth, on hearing the gladsome tidings;

with the Angels and the shepherds now glorify Him, Who is willing to be gazed on as a young Child,

Who before the ages is God.
