A Christmas Litany




A Christmas Litany

Our Lord is born today. Our Messiah lies in straw, dust, and rags. 

How peculiar and how glorious. 

He comes in flesh, bone, and blood, and with the pure, earthy, and hungry cry of a new baby. 

How puzzling and how wondrous. 

Our Saviour comes to us, embracing our world and embracing our humanity. With the fragile neediness of an infant and within the immaculate vessel of a created body-skin, cells, and atoms. The One who made us has come to dwell among us. 

How peculiar and how glorious. 

We receive our infant Messiah. Jesus Christ, healer of our world.
We receive our Emmanuel. Our living Lord who is near. 
We receive our Almighty God. Creator and sustainer of all. 
We receive our Prince of Peace. Ruler and great king. 

Joy to the World, our Lord has come. 

How puzzling and how wondrous.
