Opening Litany for Christmas Eve

Here’s a beautiful opening litany for Christmas Eve.  It was written by Lisa Frenz.

In the Quiet of the Night


In the quiet of the night
A woman gives birth:
A personal act of faith;
Accepting God's charge upon her.

In the quiet of the night
A husband becomes a father:
A personal act of faith;
Accepting God's charge upon him.

In the quiet of the night
A baby breathes the air:
A personal act of sacrifice;
God steps out of the divine into the mundane
For us.
