Jesus said, 

"Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest."

 

Come, O Come
Be our light
Drive out the darkness
Come, Jesus, Come

Every year under the thorn
Every wrong that we have known
Every valley will be raised
Ancient ruins will be remains

Come, O Come
Be our light
Drive out the darkness
Come, Jesus, Come

Every weapon made for war
Every gun and every sword
Will be melted in the flame
To be used for gardening

Come, O Come
Be our light
Drive out the darkness
Come, Jesus, Come


In the emptiness of grief
Through the night of suffering
In the loss and in the tears
God of comfort, O be near...

Come, O Come
Be our light
Drive out the darkness

Come, and end all the violence
Come, do not be silent
Come, cling to your promise
Come, break all injustice
Come, Jesus, Come

 
 
 

O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining,
It is the night of the dear Saviour's birth;

Long lay the world in sin and error pining
Till He appeared and the soul felt its worth.
thrill of hope
the weary world rejoices,
For yonder breaks
a new and glorious
morn;
Fall on your knees,
oh, hear the angel voices!
O night divine, O night when
Christ was born!
O night, O holy night, O night divine!

Truly He taught us to love one another;
His law is love and His Gospel is Peace
Chains shall He break, for the slave is our brother
And in His name, all oppression shall cease
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we
Let all within us Praise His Holy name
Christ is the Lord; O praise His name forever!
His power and glory evermore proclaim
His power and glory evermore proclaim

Psalm 130

 Out of the depths I cry to you, Lord;
   Lord, hear my voice.
Let your ears be attentive
    to my cry for mercy. 


If you, Lord, kept a record of sins,
    Lord, who could stand?
But with you there is forgiveness,
    so that we can, with reverence, serve you.


 I wait for the Lord, my whole being waits,
    and in his word I put my hope.

I wait for the Lord


    more than watchmen wait for the morning,
    more than watchmen wait for the morning.

 Israel, put your hope in the Lord,
    for with the Lord is unfailing love
    and with him is full redemption.
He himself will redeem Israel
    from all their sins.

Luke 2:8-12

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them,

“Do not be afraid. I bring you good news that will cause great joy for all the people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is the Messiah, the Lord. 


This will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.”

 
 
 

For unto us a child is born
        For unto us a child is born

For unto us a child is born
        For unto us a child is born

Unto us a son is given

        Unto us a son is given x2

And his name shall be called

Wonderful, counselor

The mighty God, the everlasting father, the prince of peace

Surely, surely, he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows

Surely, surely, he has borne our griefs and carried our sorrows

And he shall reign forever and ever x4
