CHRIST IS BORN! ORTHODOX HYMNS FOR THE NATIVITY OF CHRIST (CD)

Executant: the Monks of Holy Cross Monastery #: 12147

What can we who are mortal, finite, sinful and weak offer to Him—the Immortal. Infinite, sinless and All-powerful God—Who became circumscribed for us, enduring our poverty that we might share in His riches? The mind staggers and words fail before they have even begun to attempt to hymn that awesome wonder of the God's great condescension: the birth in the flesh of the very God-Man, Jesus Christ. Nevertheless, for two-thousand years Christian hearts have assayed to offer hymns and spiritual songs to this holiest of miracles and most precious of gifts
