He whom nothing can contain has been contained in a womb.* He is in the Father’s bosom and His Mother’s embrace.* How can this be, but as He knows and willed and was well pleased.* Fleshless as He was, He willingly took flesh.* And He Who Is became what He was not, for us.* And while departing not from His own nature,* He shared in our nature’s substance.* So Christ was born with dual natures,* wishing to replenish the world on high.
Christ is born! Glorify Him!
