Kristos rozhdaetsya! Slav'te ego! Christ is Born! Glorify Him! Christos Gennatai! Doxasate!

Bethlehem has opened Eden: Come, and let us see! We have found joy hidden! Come, and let us take possession of the paradise within the cave. There the unwatered stem has appeared, from which forgiveness blossoms forth! There is found the undug well from which David longed to drink of old, and there the virgin has borne a child, and at once the thirst of Adam and David is made to cease. Therefore let us hasten to this place: since for our sake the eternal God was born as a little child!
