Tavener, John - Ikon of the Nativity

Ikon of the Nativity No one quite knows, Lord, what to call Your mother: should we call her a 'virgin'? But her giving birth is an established fact; or 'married Woman'? But no man has known her. If Your mother's case is beyond comprehension, who can hope to understand Yours? The Mighty One entered, and put on insecurity from her womb; The provisioner of all entered and experienced hunger; He who gives drink to all entered and experienced thirst. Naked and stripped there came forth from her, He who clothes all! Praise to you to whom all things are easy, You are almighty.
