the eternal God born as a little Child!

 

Nativity Icon

Christ is born. Glorify Him!

Some of my favorite Nativity verses from my patron saint St. Ephrem the Syrian, one of the Church’s all-time greatest poets:

 

Today the Virgin gives birth to the Transcendent One

And the earth offers a cave to the Unapproachable One! 

Angels with shepherds glorify Him.

 The wise men journey with a star!

Since for our sake the Eternal God was born as a Little Child!

I also offer, from You Tube, an Arabic Christmas Carol (Byzantine Hymn of the Nativity) :
