Candlelighting Liturgy – Christmas Eve – Sing

Christmas Eve – Sing

It seems that everyone who experiences Christ is moved to sing with their hearts and lives. It began with the angels’ song of announcement, then was heard in a manger-side lullaby and continues even now as we light the Christ candle. In the weeks to come, ask yourself: what words will I sing; what tune will I hum to give birth to God’s love?

Let us pray:

Song of Life, fill our hearts with the music of compassion and our lives with the melody of justice. Write on our hearts the lyrics that will transform despair into hope. May Christ’s bold love, unswerving commitment to the oppressed, and radical heart of welcome be the song that energizes us this year. Amen.
