Emmanuel

The inconceivable is conceived

in the womb of a virgin.

 The unmeasurable became 3 cubits high;

the unqualifiable acquires a quality;

the undefinable stands up, sits down and lies down;

He who is everywhere is put into a crib. 

He who is above time

gradually reaches the age of 12;

He who is formless appears with the shape of a man;

and the incorporeal enters into a body. 

from the writings of St. Theodore the Studite
