Dear Lord Jesus, help me to open wide my door to you. Show me how to open my heart and soul to your love, mercy, and grace. Beloved, Sun of eternal light shine on me. Beloved Christmas Miracle, save me, I wait and long for your coming.

Come, thou Redeemer of the earth,
and manifest thy virgin-birth:
let every age adoring fall;
such birth befits the God of all.
