Icons of the Christ Child and His mother
What shall we offer Thee, O Christ, Who for our sakes hast appeared on the earth as a man? Every creature which Thou hast made offers Thee thanks. The angels offer Thee a song; the heavens, their star; the wise men, their gifts; the shepherds, their wonder; the earth, its cave; the wilderness; the manger; and we offer Thee a virgin mother. O Pre-eternal God, have mercy on us!
— A hymn from the Royal Hours of Christmas
