Merry Christmas!

Today all things are filled with joy, for Christ is born of the Virgin.

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!

Come, O faithful,
let us go to see where Christ was born!
We shall follow the Wise Men, kings from the East,
and be led by the guiding star to the place where
Angels sing unceasing praise.
Shepherds in the fields offer fitting hymns:
“Glory in the highest to Him Who today was born of the
Virgin in a cave in Bethlehem of Judah!”

Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace!
Today Bethlehem receives Him Who reigns forever with the Father.
Today Angels glorify the newborn Babe in hymns worthy of God:
“Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth, peace, good will to men!”

Christ is born, glorify Him!
Christ comes from heaven,
go to meet Him!
Christ is on earth, be exalted!
Sing to the Lord, all the earth,
and praise Him in gladness, O people,
for He has been glorified!
