|"And she gave birth to her first born, a son. She wrapped him |
in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room
for them in the inn."
|"There were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping|
watch over their flocks at night."
|"An angel of the Lord appeared to them"... and said "Do not be afraid.|
I bring you good news of great joy for all the people."
|"Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you;|
He is Christ the Lord."
|"Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel,|
praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on whom his favor rests."
|May you receive the peace and joy that God has so graciously given to us!|
