"Though you have not seen him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him, and are filled with an inexpressible and glorious joy, for you are receiving the end result of your faith, the salvation of your souls." - 1 Peter 1:8-9

You were born in a Stable, late one Night.
Bathed Tenderly, with Mary’s Delight.
The Glory of the World Hath Arrived,
Bearing Joy, Love and Light, that Thrived.
Sparkling Jubilance, Ordained to Guide.
Us, to Revere, Kindle, and Abide.

We Sing with Heart, and Joyous Exuberance.
And Welcome God’s Immense Blessed Assurance.
We Raise our Voices with Gladness, Excitement and JOY!
To Resonate Harmoniously with Glory, for God’s Gifted Son Boy.

Our Hearts, Your Wondrous Beauty has Kissed.
Your Miraculous Faith, all Hallowed Comforts Wished.
Brilliance, is Your Joy Sustaining,
Like Golden Dulcimers Exclaiming!

O Babe, We Sing to You with JOY,
And Bestow unto You, Our Eternal Gratefulness, for Our Little Babe Boy.
- Yvonne Crist, 2017

Gracious God, guide us in confession of our sins. We know that in the presence of Your Peace, You have promised to redeem us & forgive us. Cleanse us as we prepare our lives for the coming of Jesus, who is our Peace. This we ask in His precious name. Amen.
