Watchnight

December 23, 2015

As we move into Christmas Eve, some Christmas Eve words that will be heard at our watchnight service at 11.30pm.

 

There is a song that is sung at this time
an ancient song
of prophets and dreamers
that haunts this moment
with expectation and love
a song that brings the light together
and draws to it hope
and awakens justice
when God’s love is born

 

This breath of light
this promise of a child to be born
is what we wait for tonight
for the promise is still real
it is still believed
by those who long
beyond tinsel and straw
to the real truth of this story
a world set alive by the love of God and the justice of heaven
and it is here all our hopes find themselves
this place where God’s love is born

 

So let the hope that fills tonight
gather us here
for we still believe
in the promise of incarnation
of a God who chooses flesh
rather than word
to speak of love
and is now ready to step into the world
vulnerable and new
to set free the promise
