Dear Lord Jesus, you came as flesh to teach us of God’s love. You are our model for holiness. You agreed to take on our human nature. Oh, Lord, how you must love me. Teach me how to love like You. Beloved Christmas Miracle, save me, I wait and long for your coming.
Come, Redeemer of the Earth
Begotten of no human will,
But of the Spirit, Thou art still
The Word of God in flesh arrayed,
The promised fruit to men displayed.
