A Christmas Prayer
Robert Louis Stevenson wrote the text for this lovely Christmas piece. It is suitable for a concert or church services. Difficulty level is medium easy.
Loving Father, Help us to remember the birth of Jesus
that we may share in the song of the angels,
the gladness of the shepherds, and the worship of the wise men.
Close the door of hate and
open the door of love all over the world.
Let kindness come with every gift and good desires with every greeting.
Deliver us from evil by the blessing which Christ brings, and teach us to
be merry with clear hearts. May the Christmas morning make us happy
to be Thy children, and the Christmas evening
bring us to our beds with grateful thoughts,
forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus’ sake.
