During this Christmas season, we pray that you would find joy in Christ, the light of the world. We thought this ancient hymn [Of the Father’s Love Begotten] would be a helpful reflection for the last Sunday of Advent and for Christmas a few days later. May God bless you richly in this season! – The ESN Team
O God, who hast caused this holy night to shine with the illumination of the true Light: Grant us, we beseech thee, that as we have known the mystery of that Light upon earth . . .
O God of God! O Light of Light!/Thou Prince of Peace, Thou King of kings,/To Thee, where angels know no night,/
The song of praise forever rings . . .
At Christmas, God’s love flowed into the world in a new way.
Love came down at Christmas,/Love all lovely, Love Divine;/Love was born at Christmas,/Star and Angels gave the sign.
