And she brought forth her firstborn son, wrapped Him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger for there was no room for them in the inn.
Now, there were in the same country shepherds living out in the field keeping watch over their flocks by night. And lo, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were greatly afraid. Then the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people! For there is born to you this day in the City of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign to you: you will find the babe wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”
And suddenly there was with the angels a multitude of the heavenly hosts praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest! And on earth, peace, good will toward men.”
Merry Christmas with Love,
