Luke 2:4-7
4 And Joseph also went up from Galilee, from the town of Nazareth, to Judea, to the city of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was of the house and lineage of David, 5 to be registered with Mary, his betrothed, who was with child. 6 And while they were there, the time came for her to give birth. 7 And she gave birth to her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling cloths and laid him in a manger, because there was no place for them in the inn.
Hymn: WS 704 :
Oh Lord, How Shall I Meet You


1. O Lord, how shall I meet You,
How welcome you aright?
Your people long to greet You,
My Hope, my heart’s Delight!
O Jesus, let Your Word
Be a lamp to light may way,
To show my how to please You,
To guide me ev’ry day.

2. Your Zion strews before You
Green baughs and fairest palms;
And I to will adore You,
With joyous songs and psalms.
My heart shall bloom forever for
You with praises new
And from Your name shall never
withold the honor due.

3. I lay in fetters groaning,
You came to set me free;
I stood, my shame bemoaning,
You came to honor me.
A glorious crown You give me,
A treasure safe on high,
That will not fail nor leave me
As earthly riches fly.

4. Love caused Your incarnation,
Love brought You down to me;
Your thirst for my salvation
Procured my liberty.
O love beyond all telling,
That led you to embrace
In love all love excelling
Our lost and fallen race.

5. Rejoice, then, you sad-hearted,
Who sit in deepest gloom,
Who mourn o’er joys departed,
And tremble at your doom:
Despair not; He is near you,
He’s standing at the door;
Who best can help and cheer you,
And bids you weep no more.

6. He comes to judge the nations;
A terror to His foes,
A light of consolations,
And blessed hope to those
Who love the Lord’s appearing.
O glorious Sun now come,
Send forth Your beams most cheering,
And guide us safely home.
