AFFIRMATION OF FAITH

HYMN #190                                                  “Angels From the Realms of Glory”

1-Angels, from the realms of glory, wing your flight o’er all the earth.  Ye who sang creation’s story, now proclaim Messiah’s birth.  CHORUS-Come and worship, come and worship, worship Christ, the newborn King.

2-Shepherds, in the fields abiding, watching o’er your flocks by night.  God with man is now residing, yonder shines the infant light.  CHORUS

3-Wise men, leave your contemplation, brighter visions beam afar.  Seek the great Desire of nations, ye have seen his natal star.  CHORUS

4-Saints before the altar bending, watching long in hope and fear. Suddenly the Lord, descending, in his temple shall appear.  CHORUS

PRAYER

HYMN #206                                                                                   “We Three Kings”

1-We three kings of Orient are, bearing gifts we traverse afar, field and fountain, moor and mountain, following yonder star.  CHORUS-O star of wonder, star of night, star with royal beauty bright, westward leading, still proceeding, guide us to thy perfect light.

2-Born a King on Bethlehem’s plain, gold I bring to crown him again, King forever, ceasing never, over us all to reign.  CHORUS

Come, just as you are, hear the Spirit call, come just as you are, come and see, come receive, come and live forever. (repeat)  CHORUS-Life everlasting, and strength for today, taste the living water and never thirst again.

PRAYER

1-Enter the gate, walk to the place, and meet the infant Jesus who will change the world.  Come and adore on Christmas day and see the eyes of one who so loved the world.  CHORUS-Heaven smiles when the angels sing, glory to God, the infant king.  Peace on the earth, let the echo ring, Messiah God, the infant king.

2-Come with your gift or all you have and lay them at the altar of eternal life.  Jesus the Son of his Father’s hand, the author and the maker of the gift of life.  CHORUS

Hark (hark), hark (hark) the angels sing, glory to the newborn king.

Hark (hark), hark (hark) creation sings, glory to the infant king.
