Mozarabic Christmas Blessing

May our Lord Jesus Christ bless you,
as he blessed the shepherds
when he gloriously appeared to them
in the manger.

May he himself protect
and defend us in all things,
who took on himself
our human weakness
in his infancy.

May he, who is our Lord and Savior,
graciously + keep us
now and forever.
