A Call to Renewal

The Christmas star lighted the wise men’s hearts
showing the way to Bethlehem’s stall
to view the newborn King.
They honored Him with their treasures,
gold, frankincense, and myrrh.
We honor Him for setting us free from sin.

Let us seek the Eternal One,
His life to receive
that in the joy of His presence
we may worship Him in wonder and praise.

As they of long ago shared the glorious news
that Christ the King has come 
we too rejoice that He will come again.

May the Lord who sent angels 
to humble shepherds in a field
and a star for wise men to guide,
call us at this holy season to behold Jesus anew,
and offer treasures from hearts in which He dwells.
