So today is the day holy,
The angel descended from heaven
And sang: "Christ is born!"
Yes, Christ our God and Savior,
At midnight, people,
In the cave he lived a poor ...
The world was expecting the Savior-King,
He was born as quiet as charged.
Not in the palace of the rich, not in the capital,
Where would befit God to be born.
He was born in the crib in the midnight hour,
Manifesting an example of humility for us.
God was born under the sky of Bethlehem,
His birth - a poem.
