Deus, qui nos redemptionis nostrae annua exspectatione laetificas: praesta, ut Unigenitum tuum, quem Redemptorem laeti suscipimus, venientem quoque judicem securi videamus, Dominum nostrum Jesum Christum Filium tuum: Qui tecum vivit et regnat. O God, Who doest gladden us by the yearly expectation of our redemption, grant that we, who now joyfully receive Thine only-begotten Son as our Redeemer, may also without fear behold Him coming as our Judge, even the same Lord Jesus Christ Thy Son: who with Thee liveth and reigneth.

gospel
Mt. 1:18-21
Cum esset desponsata mater Jesu Maria Joseph, antequam convenirent, inventa est in utero haven de Spiritu Sancto. Joseph autem vir ejus, cum esset justus, et nollet eam traducere, voluit occulte dimittere eam. Haec autem eo cogitante, ecce Angelus Domini apparuit in somnis ei dicens: Joseph, fili David, noli  timere accipere Mariam conjugem tuam: quod enim in ea natum est, de Spiritu Sancto est. PPariet autem filium et vocabis nomen ejus Jesum: ipse enim salvum faciet populum suum a pecatis eorum.   When Mary the mother of JEsus was espoused to Joesph, before they cam together, she was found with child of the Holy Ghost. Whereupon Joseph her husband, being a just man and not wiilling pubicly to expose her, was minded to put her away privately. But while eh thought on these things, behold the Angel of the Lord appeared to him in his sleep, saying: Joseph, son of David, fear no to take which is conceived in her is of the Holy Ghost. And she shall bring forth a Son, and thou shalt call His name Jesus: for He shall save His people from their sins.

Preface
The Common Preface
   Vere dignum et justum est, aequum et salutare, nos tibi semper, et ubique gratias agere: Domine sancte, Pater omnipotens, aeterne Deus: per Christum Dominum nostrum. Per quem majestatem tuam laudant Angeli, adorant Dominationes, tremunt Potestates. Coeli coelorumque Virtutes ac beata Seraphim socia exsultatione concelebrant. Cum quibus et nostras voces ut admitti jubeas, deprecamur supplici confessione dicentes:      It it truly meet and just, right and for our salvation, that we should at all times, and in all places, give thanks to Thee, holy Lord, Father almighty, eternal God, through Christ our Lord: through Whom Angels praise Thy Majesty, Dominations worship, Powers stand in awe: the Heavens and the host of heaven with blessed Seraphim unite, exult and celebrate and we entreat that Thou wouldst bid our voices also to be heard with theirs, singing with lowly praise:
