Don't know what to make of this

I surfed onto this virtual Christmas card, of sorts, at Hamatorua Monastery (I have no idea where it is, and most of the website is not in English).

The virtual Christmas card is an animation of a Nativity Icon with Orthodox chant in 3 languages in the background. As best as I can translate, the hymn text in the background is:

"Today the virgin giveths birth to Him
Who is the Servent in Essence

and the earth offereth a cave to Him
who is unapproachable

Angels with shepherds give glory,
with a Star the Magi do journey,
for our sake a young Child is born,
who is pre- eternal God."

Interesting but strange. See what you make of it.
