Lord of light,
the dark is not dark to you
for you are a God who births light into the world.
We are a people who live in darkness.
We seek your light in our life
to give us sight
to give us meaning
to give us salvation.
Be born this night in us Christ-light.
Coo in the manger of our hearts.
Glow so bright that day overcomes night
and all the world may see you, Christ Child, Amen.
