"The angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; for behold, I proclaim to you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. For today in the city of David a savior has been born for you who is Messiah and Lord. And this will be a sign for you: you will find an infant wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger." - Luke 2:10-12 "O God, whose Son was born in bethlehem, on that wonderous night,
lead us to the same place where Mary laid her tiny child.
As we look on in wonder and praise, make us welcome Him
and all new life, and care for his handiwork; the earth, the sky, and the sea.
O God bless us again in Your great love.
We pray for this through Christ our lord, amen."
