Like hoarfrost that sparkles on winter-bare trees,
like gentle caressing of springtime’s sweet breeze,
the mystery of Christmas with sparkle and light
transfigures our world and gives gift of new sight.
In visions and dreamings we’ve sought what is found,
the humblest of places becomes holy ground.
A cry in the night alerts all who would see
how near comes God’s promise to you and to me.
Consider the wonder and pause at the grace
of life giving love touching all time and space.
God’s love has been spoken in birth of a son
and new day on earth has now surely begun.
In stillness receive the rich gift of this night,
God’s flesh taking love puts all evil to flight.
The Christ that was born in that now distant hour
still offers God’s promise with its healing power.
This child will bear cross and this child will wear crown,
the weak will be lifted, the proud be thrown down.
God’s love which is justice, God’s love which is life
draws people together and silences strife.
