In the Gospel according to St. Luke. The angel announced the birth of Jesus to the shepherds using these words:
"Fear not: for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born today in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger"
