English translation

Und sie kamen eilend und funden beide, Mariam und Joseph, dazu das Kind in der Krippe liegen. Da sie es aber gesehen hatten, breiteten sie das Wort aus, welches zu ihnen von diesem Kind gesaget war. Und alle, für die es kam, wunderten sich der Rede, die ihnen dir Hirten gesaget hatten. Maria aber behielt alle diese Worte und bewegte sie in ihrem Herzen.
And they came hastily and found both Mary and Joseph, along with the child lying in the manger. When they had seen it, however, they spread the word around, that had been spoken about this child. And everyone to whom it came marveled at the sayings that the shepherds had told them. Mary however kept all these words and pondered them in her heart.
(Luke 2:16–19)
