Verbum caro factum est,
et habitavit in nobis,
* et vidimus gloriam ejus,
gloriam quasi unigeniti a Patre,
plenum gratiae et veritatis.

V. Omnia per ipsum facta sunt,
et sine ipso factum est nihil:
* et vidimus . . .
V. Gloria Patri, et Filio, et Spiritui Sancto.
Verbum . . .
(John 1:14,3; Matins responsory, Christmas)

English.png English translation

The Word was made flesh,
and dwelt among us,
* and we saw his glory,
the glory as of the only-begotten of the Father,
full of grace and truth.

V. All things were made through him,
and without him nothing was made:
* and we saw his glory . . .
V. Glory be to the Father, and to the Son, and to the Holy Spirit.
The Word was made flesh . . .
