Getting Ourselves Ready

Immersed in their story
their journey to Bethlehem
actively seeking our Savior
the Son of God, of man
getting ourselves ready
to witness to his coming
the blessing of the Christ-child
God’s Son revealed
our path to paradise
fulfilling all scripture
in mercy and love
the one descended from heaven
who ascended after his resurrection
his work here done
returning to the highest heaven
until the time of God’s choosing
returning to the earth
to gather his sheep to him
