Lo, the time of our salvation is at hand

Lo, the time of our salvation is at hand. 

Make ready, O cave; 
 the Virgin draws nigh to give birth. 

Be glad and rejoice, O Bethlehem, land of Judah, for from thee our Lord has shown forth as the dawn. 

Hearken, ye mountains and hills, and all ye lands round about Judea: 
for Christ comes in His love for mankind, to save the man He fashioned.

"As the Prophets saw, as the Apostles taught, as the Church has received, as the Teachers express in dogma, as the inhabited world understands together with them, as grace illumines, as the truth makes clear, as error has been banished, as wisdom makes bold to declare, as Christ has assured, so we think, so we speak, so we preach, honoring Christ our true God, and his Saints, in words, in writings, in thoughts, in sacrifices, in churches, in icons, worshiping and revering the One as God and Lord, and honoring them because of their common Lord as those who are close to him and serve him, and making to them relative veneration. This is the faith of the Apostles; this is the faith of the Fathers; this is the faith of the Orthodox; this faith makes fast the inhabited world."
