Behold I bring you glad tidings of great joy
which shall be to all people.

For unto you is born this day in the city of David,
a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
And this shall be a sign unto you :
Ye shall find the babe wrapt in swaddling clothes,
lying in a manger.

And suddenly there was with the angel
a multitude of the heavenly host,
praising God and saying,
Glory to God in the highest
and on earth peace, good-will towards men.

Hallelujah.
