I know we have just concluded our Christmas season, but someone forwarded me this beautiful hymn yesterday, and I couldn’t resist sharing with all of you. Its message and melody are so hauntingly beautiful, speaking of the great Mystery of the Birth of Christ.
Today is born of a virgin He who holds the whole creation in His hand!
He whose essence none can touch is bound in swaddling clothes as a Child.
God, Who in the beginning established the heavens, lies in a manger.
He who rained manna on His people in the wilderness is fed on milk from His mother’s breast.
The Bridegroom of the Church summons the wise men.
The Son of the Virgin accepts their gifts.
We worship Thy birth O Christ!
Show us also Thy Divine Theophany.
