Advent to Candlemas (Vol. 2)

The Christmas Spirit

The Spirit celebrates Her child
In silver star and diamond snow
To let her raptured maiden know
How she is faithful, sweet and wild.

    She is the sparkling
    She is the song they sing
    She is the news they bring
    She is the star beckoning.

The Spirit celebrates Her Word,
Good news in harmony unknown
Which leads the awestruck shepherds on
To see the lamb that is their Lord.

The Spirit celebrates her king
With gifts secured in rough-hewn wood
By nails of fatal brotherhood,
Sealed with the stamp of suffering.

The Spirit celebrates our God,
Forged flesh from light's divine desire
Quickening all hearts with sacred fire
To know God in our flesh and blood.
