On this day, our Lord and Saviour came to us, the race of men,

Born of a pure Virgin favoured, His chaste Mother, Mariam.

The Beginingless beginneth, He is clothed with flesh and form; Uncreated God is fashioned and within a cave is born.

Angels bring the gladsome tidings to the shepherds with odes new; Heaven’s star, with wondrous shining, leads the Wise-men to the truth.
