Go ahead of the Master to prepare his ways,
Present the offer of salvation,
the forgiveness of sins.
And these words shall be in your heart,
You shall teach them diligently to your children,
and shall talk of them when you sit in your house, when you walk by the way,
when you lie down, and when you rise up.
The child you bring to birth will be called Holy, Son of God.
She wrapped him in a blanket and laid him in a manger
because there was no room in the hostel.
Unto us a Child is born,
Unto us a Son is given!
The shepherds left, running, and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in the manger.
Seeing was believing.
They told everyone they met what the angels had said about this child.
The sheepherders let loose, glorifying and praising God for everything they had heard and seen.
A band of scholars arrived in Jerusalem from the East…to worship him.
They could hardly contain themselves: They were in the right place!
They had arrived at the right time!
They entered the house and saw the child in the arms of Mary, his mother.
Overcome, they kneeled and worshiped him.
Glory to God in the heavenly heights,
Peace to all men and women on earth who please him.
For a child has been born—for us!
The gift of a son—for us!
His names will be Amazing Counselor.
Prince of Wholeness.
Mary kept all these things to herself, holding them dear,
deep within herself.
