And behold, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord surrounded them; and they were very afraid. And the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you glad tidings of great joy, which will be for all peoples. For today a Savior is born to you in the city of David, who is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign for you; You will find the child wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
