A Christmastime Prayer

Joy to the world our Saviour comes

Not in power, not in might but in in the tenderness of love

He comes as the promise of life hidden in a mother’s womb

This is the time we believe once more thta perfect love casts out fear

That generosity transforms scarcity into abundance

That righteousness overcomes oppression with justice

This is the time we are assured

That God’s light has come into the world

And the darkness will never overcome it.
