Kontakion of Preparation for
the Feast of the Nativity of our Lord

Today the Virgin is on her way to the cave where she will give birth to the Eternal Word of God in an ineffable manner. Rejoice, therefore, O universe when you hear this news, and glorify with the angels and the shepherds, Him who shall appear as a Child being God from all eternity.

[We've been singing this since 26 November, excluding the celebration of the Maternity of St Anna the Mother of Mary AKA the Immaculate Conception. For more information about Kontakia (plural), check out, click on Kontakion and follow the instructions.]
