And behold, an angel of the Lord stood before them,
and the glory of the Lord shone round 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 will be to all people.
For there is born to you this day in the city of David
a Saviour, who is Christ the Lord. And this will
be the sign to you; You will find a babe wrapped
in swaddling cloths, 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, goodwill toward men!"
