Behold, I bring you glad tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
For unto you is born this day a saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
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, good will towards men".
Hallelujah.
