Roused from the distraction of life—
We pause what we are doing.
Despite sickness, worry, the labor of this world…
We leave these things behind and come.
We are these shepherds—seeking;
Led by this Light within…
We come to the manger.
He is found with rejoicing!
He is born! Christ is born!
Arise all you people and come!
Come see this wonder: Son of man and Son of God.
Come see the Christ child, born on this day.
Glory in the highest…
For unto us a Son is given.
And our joy is increased.
Joy to you, my friends.
