Advent Hymn


The Virgin now comes to Bethlehem to give birth to Christ
Who has become an infant in the flesh.
Christ has voluntarily become poor.
Christ has become visible.
Let heaven and earth rejoice!

The Rich One became poor,
Making poor those who have grown rich in evil.
God is revealed as a mortal man,
Born without change of a Maiden
who has not known a man.
Let us all praise Him in song.
For He has been glorified.

These words on Mary are uplifting, and I find them personally rewarding--poetry. Are they by the poet Ephrem?

On my blog I have many images of Mary Mother of God, including icons. Here is the address:
