As the days grow shorter and darkness descends,
The world refuses to comprehend.
Instead they celebrate with noise and glee;
A holiday without the Nativity.
We will fast and give alms as they did long ago,
We'll feel much lighter,
Our spirits grow brighter;
Our hearts will be all aglow.
'Tis a special time to watch and wait;
It is not yet time to celebrate.
We must strive to bring His love to a world full of hate;
Draw close to the Savior before it's too late.
This mystery we cannot comprehend;
That the Father his dear Son He would lend
To be battered and buffeted and hung on a cross;
The world still hates Him, to its great loss.
As the time of His blessed Nativity approaches
We must patiently bear the world's reproaches;
And watch for
His holy birth with awe:
The Savior who came to fulfill the law.
We wait for this sacred mystery to unfold:
The incarnation from ages untold.
Then we will celebrate with gladness and joy
That Christ our Savior was born a baby boy.
