Earth stood hard as iron water like a stone Cherubim and seraphim thronged the air. Snow had fallen snow on snow snow on snow But His mother only in her maiden bliss. In the bleak midwinter long ago Worshipped the beloved with a kiss. Our God Heaven cannot hold Him nor earth sustain What can I give Him poor as I am. Heaven and earth shall flee away when He comes to reign If I were a shepherd I would bring a lamb. In the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed If I were a Wise Man I would do my part. The Lord God Almighty Jesus Christ Yet what I can I give Him give my heart. Christina Rossetti 1830 1894,Let Every Heart Cary Ratcliff. Let every heart prepare him room and heav n and nature sing. Joy to the world the Lord is come let earth receive her King. While fields and floods rocks hills and plains repeat the sounding joy. The Savior reigns joy to the world let us our songs employ. Sing Emmanuel Sing God is with us Hallelujah sing gloria. He comes to make his glories known far as the curse is found. No more let sins and sorrows grow nor thorns infest the ground. He rules the world with truth and grace and makes the nations prove. the glories of his righteousness and wonders of his love. Sing Emmanuel Sing God is with us Hallelujah sing gloria.

And because this of all things would rejoice his heart let us at this time remember in his name the poor and the. helpless the hungry and the oppressed the sick and those who mourn the lonely and the unloved the aged and the. little children and all those who know not the Lord Jesus or who love him not or who by sin have grieved his heart. Let us also remember before God his pure and lowly Mother and all those who rejoice with us but upon another. shore and in a greater light that multitude which no one can number whose hope was in the Word made flesh and. with whom in this Lord Jesus we for evermore are one. These prayers and praises let us humbly offer to God in the words which Christ himself taught us. Our Father who art in heaven hallowed be thy Name, thy kingdom come thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread, And forgive us our debts as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation but deliver us from evil. For thine is the kingdom and the power and the glory for ever and ever Amen. The People sit,The Bidding Carol Come thou long expected Jesus.
