LAVISH LOVE: How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are! (I John 3:1 NIV)

Christmas Midnight

Last two stanzas of “Christmas Midnight,” a poem by Donna Fletcher Crow in her book, Seasons of Prayer: Rediscovering Classic Prayers Through the Christian CalendarImage


Raise high the incensed prayers for God’s delight,

Praise Him who comes, our King, our Counselor,

Bringing joy, this silent night. This holy night.


Emmanuel is born anew. Blest rite,

The vigil keep on sacred calendar.

Entranced, in wonder kneel by flickering light,

Replete with Joy this silent, holy night.
