And it came to pass in those days that there went out a decree from And the angel said unto them Fear not for behold I bring you good

Caesar Augustus that all the world should be taxed tiding of great joy which shall be to all people

And this taxing was first made when Cyrenius was governor of Syria For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour which is
And all went to be taxed into his
everyone own city Christ the Lord

And Joseph also went up from Galilee out of the city of Nazareth And this shall be a sign unto you ye shall find the babe wrapped in
into Judea unto the city of David which is called Bethlehem because swaddling clothes lying in a manger

he was of the house and lineage of David to be taxed with Mary his And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly

espoused wife being great with child host praising God and saying Glory to God in the highest and on earth
And so it was that while they there the
were days were accomplished peace good will toward men
that she should be delivered
And it came to pass as the angels were gone away from them into
And she brought forth her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling heaven the shepherds said one to the other Let us go even unto Bethlehem

known unto us
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field And they came with haste and found Mary and Joseph and the babe
keeping watch their
over flock by night
lying in a manger
Lord And lo the angel of the Lord came upon them and the glory of the And when they had seen it they made known abroad the saying which
shone round about them
and
they were sore afraid
was told them concerning this child
