Christmas Call to Worship: Come Away


Here’s a call to worship for Christmas Eve or Christmas Day.  It was written by Ruth C. Duck.

Christmas Call to Worship
 
Come away, come away, come today to Bethlehem.

Come adore on bended knee, one whose birth the angels sing.

Come away, come away from your noisy celebration,
to a place of quietness and peace.

Come with wonder, come with awe.
Take your place among sheep and cattle.

Sing with joy, praise God, for the time of promise has come.
Sing the good news of Emmanuel:  God-with-us!
The Christ has come!

Come away, come away, come today to Bethlehem. Amen.
