THE PROMISE OF CHRISTMAS
Come, celebrate the promised One,
Heralded by a shining star,
Revealed to all this Holy Night.
Innocent babe born in a stable,
Sought by shepherds and kings alike--
Truth has taken human form.
Make haste, rejoice, sing alleluia . . .
Announce to all the joyous news:
Son of God, Christ our savior, has been born this Christmas Day.
