Prayer for the Nativity of Our Lord (From First Vespers in the Breviary of the Order of Preachers, 1967)

O God, you make us happy by the annual expectation of our redemption; grant that we who joyfully receive your only begotten Son as a Redeemer, may without fear, when he comes as a judge, see our Lord Jesus Christ, your Son, who lives and reigns with you. Amen.
