Advent to Candlemas (Vol. 3)

See with New eyes

See with new eyes
A scene of perfect beauty;
Hear with new ears
The sound of angel song,
See in her face
Love far surpassing duty,
Hear the good news
Awaited for so long.

Straw for a bed,
A manger for an altar,
Offering himself
To set sin's captives free,
Healing and prayer,
The love that did not falter
Promising all
New life and liberty.

Pray with new heart
This night of humble rapture,
Sing with new voice
The good news of his birth,
Search for the words
That in their essence capture
What love has changed,
Come down from heaven to earth.
