The Glories of
Is there a promise to claim or a lesson to learn? Is there a blessing to enjoy, a command to obey? Is there a sin to avoid or a new thought to carry with me?
May we see Him afresh…
As the shepherds did that first Christmas morn.
Bowing, adoring the Christ child,
God of God, Light of Light,
Born of a virgin…
God came and dwelt amidst man’s sinful scorn.
Man’s ways are not holy, even at man’s best.
He took our sin upon His sinless flesh.
Therefore, the Christ child was born.
May we see Him afresh…
Receive the fullness of His Love…to others give.
Tell the nations about the True Light,
So that they too may live.
Remember the Christ child.
Through Jesus the Christ, the Risen Lord,
God’s Love, Mercy and Grace was revealed.

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid. 10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. 12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest,
And on earth peace,
Good will toward men.
15 And it came to pass, as the angels were gone away from them into heaven, the shepherds said one to another, Let us now go even unto Beth-lehem, and see this thing which is come to pass, which the Lord hath made known unto us. 16 And they came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. 17 And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. 18 And all they that heard it wondered at those things which were told them by the shepherds. 19 But Mary kept all these things, and pondered them in her heart. 20 And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things that they had heard and seen, as it was told unto them.
