Byzantine Hymn of the Nativity

The ancient hymns of the Middle East are among the most beautiful I've ever heard.  As I read the words the angels proclaimed as chanted in this hymn, I couldn't help but tear up at the idea that He who holds the world in His hand was a helpless babe in a filthy stable, feeding on the milk of His Mother's breast.

It. Blows. My. Mind.
