A Puritan Prayer at Christmas

A Puritan Prayer at Christmas

“O God, take me in spirit to the watchful shepherds, and enlarge my mind;
let me hear good tidings of great joy, and hearing, believe, rejoice, praise, adore,
my conscience bathed in an ocean of repose,
my eyes uplifted to a reconciled Father;

“. . .  let me with Simeon clasp the new-born child to my heart,
embrace him with undying faith, exulting that he is mine and I am his.
In him thou hast given me so much that heaven can give no more.”
