Tropario Previo a Navidad

¡Belén, prepárate que ya, ha sido abierto el Edén!
¡Que te dispongas, Éfrata: porque la vida floreció
de la Virgen en la gruta!
Su vientre se mostró paraíso espiritual,
en él se plantó el madero celestial,
del cual comemos y vivimos,
jamás como Adán moriremos.
¡Cristo ha nacido y ha restaurado
la imagen antes caída!

Troparion of the Forefeast    Tone 4

Make ready, Bethlehem, Eden has been opened to all.
Prepare Ephratha, for the Tree of Life has blossomed in the cave from the Virgin.
Her womb was a spiritual paradise whence came the Divine Plant.
If we eat it we shall live and not die like Adam.
Christ is born to raise up the image that of old had fallen.
