    The Gift”

    Lighting the Advent Wreath

    Stable and Animals

    Genesis 1:1-5 and Genesis 1:24-27

    Infant Holy, Infant Lowly P. 229

    1. Infant holy, infant lowly,
    for his bed a cattle stall;
    oxen lowing, little knowing,
    Christ the babe is Lord of all.
    Swift are winging angels singing,
    noels ringing, tidings bringing:
    Christ the babe is Lord of all.

    2. Flocks were sleeping, shepherds keeping
    vigil till the morning new
    saw the glory, heard the story,
    tidings of a gospel true.
    Thus rejoicing, free from sorrow,
    praises voicing, greet the morrow:
    Christ the babe was born for you.

    Angels. Mary and Joseph

    Luke 1:21-38 and Matthew 1:18-25

    Hark! The Herald Angels Sing P. 240

    1. Hark! the herald angels sing,
    “Glory to the new born King,
    peace on earth, and mercy mild,
    God and sinners reconciled!”
    Joyful, all ye nations rise,
    join the triumph of the skies;
    with th’ angelic host proclaim,
    “Christ is born in Bethlehem!”
    Hark! the herald angels sing,
    “Glory to the new born King!”

    2. Christ, by highest heaven adored;
    Christ, the everlasting Lord;
    late in time behold him come,
    offspring of a virgin’s womb.
    Veiled in flesh the Godhead see;
    hail th’ incarnate Deity,
    pleased with us in flesh to dwell,
    Jesus, our Emmanuel.
    Hark! the herald angels sing,
    “Glory to the new born King!”

    3. Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace!
    Hail the Sun of Righteousness!
    Light and life to all he brings,
    risen with healing in his wings.
    Mild he lays his glory by,
    born that we no more may die,
    born to raise us from the earth,
    born to give us second birth.
    Hark! the herald angels sing,
    “Glory to the new born King!”

    Shepherds and Wise men

    Luke 2:8-21 and Matthew 2:1-12

    “O Come, All Ye Faithful” P. 234 Verses 1, 3, 6

    1. O come all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant,
    O come ye, O come ye, to Bethlehem.
    Come and behold him, born the King of angels;
    O come let us adore him, O come let us adore him,
    O come let us adore him, Christ the Lord.

    2. True God of true God, Light from Light Eternal,
    lo, he shuns not the Virgin’s womb;
    Son of the Father, begotten not created;

    3. Sing, choirs of angels, sing in exultation;
    O sing, all ye citizens of heaven above!
    Glory to God, all glory in the highest;

    4. See how the shepherds, summoned to his cradle,
    leaving their flocks, draw nigh to gaze;
    we too will thither bend our joyful footsteps;

    5. Child, for us sinners poor and in the manger,
    we would embrace thee with love and awe.
    Who would not love thee, loving us so dearly?

    6. Yea, Lord, we greet thee, born this happy morning,
    Jesus, to thee be all glory given.
    Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing:

    Baby Jesus

    Luke: 2:1-7
