Christ is born! Glorify Him!

Today the Virgin gives birth to the Inexpressible,
and the earth offers a cave to the Unapproachable;
angels and shepherds together give glory,
and the Magi are guided by a star,
when for our sakes was born, as a new babe,
the One who from eternity is God.

(This short hymn, still sung by Orthodox Christians in celebration of the Nativity of Christ, was written by St. Romanos the Melodist in 520 CE)
