Hymns on the Nativity – St. Ephrem

“The Son of the Most High came and dwelt in me, and I became His Mother;

and as by a second birth I brought Him forth so did He bring me forth by the second birth,

because He put His Mother’s garments on, she clothed her body with His glory.”

– St. Ephrem the Syrian, Hymns on the Nativity, Hymn XI.
