Holy One,

The space between heaven and earth

Slips open tonight

And we look up to watch for

The Star of Bethlehem

In wonder…

In hope….

Waiting for the Promise

Of Peace on earth,

And good will on whom

Your favor rests…

Shine in us,

Holy One,

For your Creation’s sake.

So may it be…

Amen.
