The Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ (Christmas Day)


Celebrant: For unto us a child is born.
People: Unto us a son is given.


Almighty God, who hast given us thine only-begotten Son to take our nature upon him, and [as at this time] to be born of a pure Virgin: Grant that we being regenerate, and made thy children by adoption and grace, may daily be renewed by thy Holy Spirit; through Jesus Christ our Lord, to whom with thee and the same Spirit be all honor and glory, world without end. Amen.

Because thou didst give Jesus Christ thine only Son to be born [as at this time] for us; who, by the operation of the Holy Ghost, was made very man of the substance of the Virgin Mary his mother; and that without spot of sin, to make us clean from all sin.
