Merry Christmas

December 24, 2009

Ἡ Παρθένος σήμερον
τὸν προαιώνιον Λόγον
ἐν σπηλαίῳ ἔρχεται
ἀποτεκεῖν ἀπορρήτως.
ἡ οἰκουμένη ἀκουτισθεῖσα·
μετὰ ἀγγέλων καὶ τῶν ποιμένων
βουληθέντα ἐποφθῆναι
παιδίον νέον
τὸν πρὸ αἰώνων Θεόν.

Today the Virgin comes to a cave
to bear ineffably
the preeternal Word.
Dance for joy
O inhabited earth
when this news comes to your ears;
along with angels and with shepherds
the God before the ages
who willed to appear
as a little child.
