I praise you, Lord!
Through you, all things were made,
You who are made in the midst of all things.
Maker of the sun,
Made under the sun.
Ruler of the stars,
Nursing at your mother’s breast.
Reveler of your Father
Creator of your mother
Son of God without a mother
Son of man without a father.
You are greater than the Day of angels,
But small in the day of men.
The Word of God before all time,
The Word made flesh at just the right time.
Unfolding all ages at the bosom of the Father
Unfolded this day from the womb of your mother;
With Him you remain,
From her you come forth.
Creator of heaven and earth
You are born on earth under heaven.
You are speechless.
Filling the world,
You lie in a manger.
