"Don't be afraid!" the angel said.
"I bring you good news of great joy
The Savior--yes, the Messiah, the
Lord--has been born tonight in
Bethlehem, the city of David!
And this is how you will recognize him:
You will find a baby lying in a manger,
wrapped snugly in strips of cloth!"
Suddenly, the angel was joined
by a vast host of others--
the armies of heaven--praising God:
"Glory to God in the highest heaven,
and peace on earth,
goodwill among people."
--Luke 2:10-14, New Living Translation
