Dear Lord, Savior King, Almighty God,
As we gaze upon your birth, before you we’re awed.
Through humility, you took on flesh, and came down to earth
And on this 25th of December, with love, we celebrate your birth.
During this season,
May we remember the reason,
For the cause of our celebration,
As the angels bow down in adoration
Of You, our beautiful, adorable king,
Conquering death for humanity like it ain’t no thing.
Grant us the grace to realize with our eyes,
That the Christmas spirit fully alive
Does not lie,
In crazed Christmas shopping,
Or holiday carols,
Or new Jordan copping,
That tell of the perils
Of a society plagued with greed and consumerism,
But through you,
And with you,
The old is broken, and new arisen.
Bless the gifts that we have received,
And by your grace, may we learn to believe
In the power of your presence and everlasting love,
Which can only be found in the skies above.
Bless our family, both living and dead,
Bless those without food, or a roof over their heads
By your guidance and grace, may we live in the light
As we say Merry Christmas to all
And to all a good night.
