Christmas

The shepherds sing; and shall I silent be?
My God, no hymn for Thee
My soul’s a shepherd too; a flock it feeds
Of thoughts, and words, and deeds.
The pasture is Thy Word; the streams
Thy grace,Enriching all the place.
Shepherd and flock shall sing, and all my powers
Out sing the daylight hours;
Then we will chide the sun for letting night
Take up his place and right;
We sing one common Lord; wherefore He should
Himself a candle hold. George Herbert (1593-1633)

For a child has been born for us, a son given to us; authority rests upon his shoulders; and he is named Wonderful Counsellor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
