Read Luke 2:1-20.


Christ’s Birth Turns the World

To the tune of “O Come All Ye Faithful”

Verse 1

Without awaiting

Sheep stand idle grazing

Never suspecting the

world has transformed

Angels above them

Wait to sing their blessing

 

Refrain

But Christ this little baby

Could I hold you maybe

Just one more moment as your

Birth turns the world

 

Verse 2

State-hoods are shaken

Hearts are overtaken

From fields and from palaces

They’re drawn by the sound

Oh how the Heavens

Tell of your arrival

 

Refrain

But Christ this little baby

Could I hold you maybe

Just one more moment as your

Birth turns the world

 

Verse 3

Now the world seeks you

For the whole world needs you

Your healing for broken hearts

That long to be whole

You will redeem us

You will recreate us

 

Refrain

But Christ this little baby

Could I hold you maybe

Just one more moment as your

Birth turns the world


Pray

Wondrous Christ, your arrival in this world was heralded by the glory of angel song to the most ordinary of people. May we hold that same song in our hearts and treasure it, always singing glory to you and enacting your peace among the earth. Amen.
