|The Birth of Christ|
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!
Merry Christmas! Christ is Born!
After all the gifts are unwrapped and the Christmas breakfast eaten, take some time to worship God, who sent His Son into the world so we could have a relationship with Him.
