Rejoice! The Lord is Born for Us

By Eowyn @DrEowyn

A light will shine on us this day:
the Lord is born for us.

Baby Jesus

Luke 2:15-16

When the angels went away from them to heaven,
the shepherds said to one another,
“Let us go, then, to Bethlehem
to see this thing that has taken place,
which the Lord has made known to us.”
So they went in haste and found Mary and Joseph,
and the infant lying in the manger.

Psalm 97:1-7, 10-12

The LORD is king; let the earth rejoice;
let the many isles be glad.
Cloud and darkness surround him;
justice and right are the foundation of his throne.
Fire goes before him,
consuming his foes on every side.
His lightening illumines the world;
the earth sees and trembles.
The mountains melt like wax before the LORD,
before the Lord of all the earth.
The heavens proclaim his justice,
and all peoples see his glory.
All who serve idols are put to shame,
who glory in worthless things;
all gods bow down before him….
You who love the LORD, hate evil,
he protects the souls of the faithful,
rescues them from the hand of the wicked.
Light dawns for the just,
and gladness for the honest of heart.
Rejoice in the LORD, you just,
and give thanks at the remembrance of his holiness.
