Haggai 2:6–7 (Listen)

For thus says the LORD of hosts: Yet once more, in a little while, I will shake the heavens and the earth and the sea and the dry land. And I will shake all nations, so that the treasures of all nations shall come in, and I will fill this house with glory, says the LORD of hosts.

(ESV)

Hymn: TLH 647, st. 3-4: O Little Town of Bethlehem

Hymnary.org Organ Audio


3. How silently, how silently, 
The wondrous Gift is given! 
So God imparts to human hearts 
The blessings of His heaven. 
No ear may hear His coming, 
But in this world of sin, 
Where meek souls will receive Him still, 
The dear Christ enters in. 

4. O holy Child of Bethlehem, 
Descend to us, we pray; 
Cast out our sin and enter in, 
Be born in us today. 
We hear the Christmas angels 
The great glad tidings tell: 
Oh, come to us, abide with us, 
Our Lord Immanuel!
