Grace and Peace to you.
For unto us a child is born;
unto us a son is given.
Behold the Christmas miracle,
that loving as a loving mother,
God has not just sent
but given us a child:
has given her Beloved to us
for our adoption,
entrusting Christ to our human care,
for us to claim, to raise,
to love as our own,
to lead into this world with pride,
and sorrow mingled in the joy.
What faith in us, and love, God has!
Open wide the arms of your heart
to the divine presence entrusted to you.
And take all the delight God hopes,
to see how much the holy child
looks just like you!
