Wishing you a Merry Christmas

“Praise and thanksgiving to you, eternal Child.

You are the hidden light without beginning which illumines the world,

The ancient of days who is born the infant son of the daughter of David.

You are the Lord who is pleased with a manger in a cave,

The Most High who was wrapped in swaddling clothes,

The awesome One who was recounted in the songs of the daughters of David.

How marvelous are you, O God, who became a man
without changing anything in your divine nature.”

(Taken from the Maronite Ramsho Evening Prayer for December 25.)
