A Christmas Prayer


O God,
Take me in spirit to the wathcful shepherds, and enlarge my mind;
Let me hear good tidings of great joy, and hearing,
believe,
rejoice,
praise,
adore,
my conscience bathed in an ocean of repose,
my eyes uplifted to a reconciled Father;
Place me with
ox,
ass,
camel,
goat,
to look with them upon my Redeemer's face
and
in Him account myself delivered from sin;
Let me with Simeon clasp the new-born child to my heart,
embrace Him with undying faith,
exulting that
He is mine
and
I am His.
In Him Thou has given me so much that heaven can give no more
The Valley of Vision
