Speak Lord: our delight

p1030866a-web

Today a saviour has been born to us: he is Christ the Lord.

O sing a new song to the Lord,
sing to the Lord all the earth.
O sing to the Lord, bless his name.

Today a saviour has been born to us: he is Christ the Lord.

Proclaim his help day by day,
tell among the nations his glory
and his wonders among all the peoples.

Today a saviour has been born to us: he is Christ the Lord.

Let the heavens rejoice and earth be glad,
let the sea and all within it thunder praise,
let the land and all it bears rejoice,
all the trees of the wood shout for joy
at the presence of the Lord for he comes,
he comes to rule the earth.

Today a saviour has been born to us: he is Christ the Lord.

With justice he will rule the world,
he will judge the peoples with his truth.

Today a saviour has been born to us: he is Christ the Lord.

Psalm 95:1-3,11-13

In just a few hours time, as sunsets, Christmas Day begins and the Church begins her celebrations of Christ’s birth, and at Mass tonight sings the psalm above.

The Christmas feast loom large in our lives. It bears all sorts of significances for us, carries all sorts of memories and associations.

  • For what, tonight, will you rejoice and give thanks?.
  • What will you mourn?
  • And for what will you hope and pray?

Christ child. St Catherine’s church, Bethlehem. (c) 2007, Allen Morris.
