Scripture: Isaiah 9:2-7
Theme: Christmas

Break forth, O beauteous heavenly light,
And usher in the morning.
You shepherds, shudder not with fright,
But hear the angel's warning.
This Child, now weak in infancy,
Our confidence and joy shall be;
The power of Satan breaking,
Our peace eternal making.
