he gennesis sou Christe ho Theos hemon
tr., John Brownlie
Thy Birth upon our world hath given,
O Christ, the truth from highest heaven;
And they who served the stars of night,
Are taught to own a truer Light.
Led by the stars' ethereal sheen,
The Sun of Righteousness is seen;
And night that in their bosom dwells,
The Dayspring from on high dispels.
