Let earth receive her King;
Let ev’ry heart prepare him room
And heav’n and nature sing, And heav’n and nature sing,

Repeat, repeat the sounding joy.

Gr. 7-8: The true light that gives light to everyone was coming into the world.
The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.
We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”
(John chapter 1:verses 1-9 and 14)

Gr 7-8: Narration:
And in the darkest of times, God’s prophet Isaiah, in chapter 9 verses 2 and 6,
would remind God’s people that the Savior was coming and what he would accomplish for all people:
Gr. 7-8: Recitation:
“The people walking in darkness have seen a great light;
on those living in the land of deep darkness a light has dawned.
For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.”

Gr. 7-8: “There was a man in Jerusalem called Simeon, who was righteous and devout.
He was waiting for the consolation of Israel, and the Holy Spirit was on him.
It had been revealed to him by the Holy Spirit that he would not die before he had seen the Lord’s Messiah.
Moved by the Spirit, he went into the temple courts.
When the parents brought in the child Jesus to do for him what the custom of the Law required,
Simeon took him in his arms and praised God, saying:
‘Sovereign Lord, as you have promised, you may now dismiss your servant in peace.
For my eyes have seen your salvation, which you have prepared in the sight of all nations:
a light for revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of your people Israel.’
The child’s father and mother marveled at what was said about him.”

What child is this who, laid to rest, On Mary’s lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet while shepherds watch are keeping?
This, this is Christ the King, whom shepherds guard and angels sing.
Haste, Haste to bring him laud, The babe, the Son of Mary!
Why lies he in such mean estate where oxen now are feeding?
Good Christians, fear; for sinners here the silent Word is pleading.
Nails, spear shall pierce him through; The cross he’ll bear for me, for you
Hail, hail the Word made flesh, The babe, the Son of Mary!
So bring him incense, gold, and myrrh; Come, peasant, king to own him.
The King of kings salvation brings; let loving hearts enthrone him.
Raise, Raise the song on high; the virgin sings her lullaby.
Joy, joy, for Christ is born, The babe, the Son of Mary!
Due Friday, December 14
1 Hark! The herald angels sing, “Glory to the newborn King;
Peace on earth and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled!”
Joyful, all you nations rise, Join the triumph of the skies;
With th’ angelic host proclaim, “Christ is born in Bethlehem!”
Refrain: Hark! The herald angels sing, “Glory to the newborn King!”
2 Christ, by highest heav’n adored, Christ, the everlasting Lord,
Late in time behold him come, Offspring of a virgin’s womb.
Veiled in flesh the Godhead see, Hail th’ incarnate Deity!
Pleased as man with us to dwell, Jesus, our Immanuel!
3 Hail, the heav’nly Prince of Peace! Hail, the Sun of Righteousness!
Light and life to all he brings, Ris’n with healing in his wings.
Mild he lays his glory by, Born that we no more may die,
Born to raise us from the earth, Born to give us second birth.
