Χριστός γεννᾶται δοξάσατε! Χριστός ἐξ οὐρανῶν ἀπαντήσατε! Χριστός ἐπί γῆς ὑψώθητε!

 Ὑψώθητε οἱ τεταπεινωμένοι

Ὑψώθητε οἱ πεπτωκότες

Ὑψώθητε οἱ περιφρονημένοι

Ὑψώθητε οἱ ἀπελπισμένοι

Ὑψώθητε οἱ ἀμελοῦντες

Ὑψώθητε οἱ ραθυμοῦντες

Ὑψώθητε οἱ πληγωμένοι ὑπό τοῦ διαβόλου

Ὑψώθητε οἱ πληγωμένοι ὑπό τῶν ἰδίων παθῶν

Ὑψώθητε οἱ πληγωμένοι ὑπό τοῦ κόσμου

Λάβετε ἰσχύν καί δύναμιν, ἀναθαρρήσατε ὅ,τι ἐτέχθη Χριστός ὁ Σωτήρ πάντων ἡμῶν.

Ἄσατε τῶ Κυρίω πᾶσα ἡ γῆ καί ἐν εὐφροσύνη ἀνυμνήσατε λαοί ὅτι δεδόξασται!

Καλά Χριστούγεννα και εὐλογημένο το νέο ἔτος!

Christ is born, glorify Him. Christ is from heaven, receive Him.  Christ is on earth, be lifted up;

Be lifted up, all you that have been humbled

Be lifted up, all you that have fallen

Be lifted up, all you that are despised

Be lifted up, all you that have despaired

Be lifted up, all you that have been neglectful

Be lifted up, all you that are indolent

Be lifted up, all you that are wounded by the devil

Be lifted up, all you that are wounded by your own passions

Be lifted up, all you that are wounded by the world

Receive power and might receive courage for Christ the Saviour is born for us.

Sing to the Lord, all the earth and praise Him with joy all people: For He has been glorified.

Have a blessed Nativity feast and a prosperous New Year!
