“Today the Virgin gives birth to the Transcendent One.”

“Today the Virgin gives birth
to the Transcendent One,
and the earth offers a cave
to the Unapproachable One!
Angels with shepherds glorify Him.
The wise men journey with a star,
since for our sake the Pre-Eternal God
was born as a young Child.”
St. Romanos the Hymnographer

Today, as we welcome the “Transcendent and Unapproachable One” into the humble manger in Bethlehem, we pray that you will see in this college the fruits of your gifts in the great season of gift-giving—the gifts of the Magi to the Child Christ, the gifts we exchange on Christmas morning, and the source of all these, the gift of the Incarnation of the Word through Whom all things were made. We thank you for the trust you place in this institution, dedicated to Our Lady, Seat of Wisdom. We ask God to bless this great endeavor, and we ask Him to bless you and your family during this joyful Christmas season.

David’s town bedded down, and the world was so cold;
Song was stilled, hearts were chilled, and the world was grown old;
Then was born Christ the Morn, Shepherd of the one fold:
David’s town bore the crown, as the prophets foretold.

Adam’s race, shorn of grace, begs of Mary reprieve:
“Be we blessed through your Yes that we too may believe,
By what’s heard God’s own Word in our hearts to conceive.
Guiding star fore the dawn, be our true Christmas Eve.”

Mary’s boy, be my joy when the martyrs shall sing,
When the Judge shall appear and the trumpet shall ring.
In the day of dismay to the Infant I cling:
Who the Baby has borne needs not fly from the King.

“David’s Town” was composed by Dr. Peter Kwasniewski (a professor at Wyoming Catholic College during its first decade), and the lyrics were written by Dr. Jeremy Holmes (currently serving as Academic Dean at the College). This performance features the College’s own choir.
