Today is born of the Virgin Him Who holds all creation in the hollow of His hand.
He Whose essence is untouchable is wrapped in swaddling clothes as a babe.
The God Who from of old established the heavens lies in a manger.
He Who showered the people with manna in the wilderness feeds on milk from the breasts.
And the bridegroom of the Church calls the Magi, and the Son of the Virgin accepts gifts from them.
We worship your Nativity, O Christ.
Show us also your divine Theophany!
