O holy Child of Bethlehem,
Descend to us, we pray.
Cast out our sin and enter in,
Be born in us today.
We hear the Christmas angels
The great glad tidings tell -
O come to us, abide with us,
Our Lord Emmanuel.
Merry Christmas! It's time to welcome a baby!
May your Christmas time be a time of welcoming others, and of receiving a welcome.
May your Christmas time be a time of welcoming Jesus, and of being welcomed by him.
And may those welcomes carry you through the year to come.
Jesus answered him, “If anyone loves me, he will keep my word, and my Father will love him, and we will come to him and make our home with him."
