Luke 2:1-20 – Sunday’s hymn of the Day is “Let All Together Praise Our God” Now that Christmas has come we can seriously think about the meaning of Christ’s coming into our world and our time. Even in troubled times God is with us.
for God unlocks the heavens today and gives to us a Son.
and gives to us a Son.
Christ lays aside his majesty and seems as nothing worth,
who made the heaven and earth.
Lo, he assumes our flesh and blood, and we of heaven partake.
and we of heaven partake.
This day again those gates unfold; with praise our God adore!
with praise our God adore!
