O God, you are and you have been forever. You have shone forth from a Virgin: have mercy on us!
Light of light, brightness of the Father, you have made the whole creation shine with joy. Every breath praises you, the image of the glory of the Father!
Christ is Born! Glorify Him!
Prayers and blessings to all.
Lord my God, I sing you a Nativity hymn, rejoicing in the vigil of the feast. By your birth you have given me divine rebirth, raising me up to my first excellence.
