Oh Lord, Our God,
Your Majestic Holiness
Fills us with joy
Throughout the Christmas season.
Your wondrous works displayed
On that day in Bethlehem
Keep our hearts and minds engaged still today,
Amazed at the extent of Your Love.
The sounds of that “Silent Night,”
Are forever on our lips.
Let the people hear us sing,
“Gloria, in excelsis Deo (Glory to God in the highest!)”
Let the “thrill of hope” be felt
In the midst of our weary world.
“Born is the King of Israel,”
The babe — the King of the whole world.
Glad tidings, You brought,
A Gospel of Truth, salvation for all,
If we only believe.
What joy; what peace!
Immanuel — God with us.
God with us.
How can this be?
You, here, for me?
There is no other comfort,
Apart from this —
Apart from You: the Prince of Peace,
Eternal Father, Mighty God.
Of Your kingdom, there shall be no end.
We stand as a testament,
Moving and breathing, hoping and longing
In You, through You, and for You.
May Yours be the glory and honor,
Majesty and power,
Forever and ever,
