Christmas

At Dawn

Psalm text (Ps 97:1-2,5-6,11-12)

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

The Lord is king! Let the earth rejoice;
let the many coastlands be glad!
Clouds and thick darkness are all around him;
righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.

The mountains melt like wax before the Lord,
before the Lord of all the earth.
The heavens proclaim his righteousness;
and all the peoples behold his glory

Light dawns for the righteous,
and joy for the upright in heart.
Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous,
and give thanks to his holy name!

Gospel Verse (Lk 2:14)

Glory to God in the highest, peace to God’s people on earth.

Psalm text (Ps 97:1+6, 11-12)

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

The Lord is king; let the earth rejoice;
let the many islands be glad.
The heavens proclaim His justice,
and all peoples see His glory.

Light dawns for the just;
and gladness, for the upright of heart.
Be glad in the Lord, you just,
and give thanks to His holy name.
