|It's someone's 16th birthday! Doesn't seem possible....|
Come to us, O Light Divine, and fill our hearts with knowledge of salvation! We thank You, O God, for the beauty of the Earth, and we laud and magnify your Name!
Help us to welcome love and hope into our hearts as we welcome the Christ child into the world, O Spirit of Truth.
Guide us into paths of righteousness, and lead us into unity and compassion for all living things.
Give us the faith to do your will, O Holy One and serve you in peace and concord.
Extend the hand of your blessing over all who call upon you, O Merciful One, and grant your peace to those we now name.
