Come Let Us Adore Him
In a sacred hush sleepy shepherds suddenly shaken awake by a splendid sky herald angels afloat in glory touching down in shafts of light. Silence is interrupted by melodious sounds sending sheep scrambling into surrounding shadows. Gloria in excelsis deo is a ribbon of song rippling in the cold night air while the wind freely flows in moonlight magic. The message of the Messiah’s birth turns fear into the joy of discovery as their steps hasten to a little town called Bethlehem. An extraordinary scene meets simple folk agog with a smiling baby in swaddling clothes cradled in a lowly manger. Dropping to my knees in humble adoration I touch love gently unfolding listening to a newborn’s gurgle in a straw filled stable. The glow of joy circles around me celebrating the day when heaven came to earth.
