Let us now go even unto Bethlehem,
and see this thing which is come to pass,
which the Lord hath made known,
hath made known unto us,

For the Angel said unto us, fear not,
For behold I bring you good 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.
