                        ON CHRISTMAS EVE

                        Say together


                        O gracious light,
                        pure brightness of the everliving Father in heaven,
                        O Jesus Christ, holy and blessed!

                        Now as we come to the setting of the sun,
                        and our eyes behold the vesper light,
                        we sing your praises, O God: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

                        You are worthy at all times to be praised by happy voices,
                        O Son of God, O Giver of Life,
                        and to be glorifi ed through all the worlds.

                        Behold, I bring you good news of a great joy, which will come to all the people;
                        for unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
                        — Luke 2:10, 11
