We walk in solemn procession
Silent Night the choir's selection.
Shepherds and Wise men gather near
With gifts of hope and cheer.
A Christmas choir serenades
Hark the Herald Angel on parade.
Children recite the Christmas story
And praise our Lord in all his glory.
Baby Jesus at his birth
Declared to us our worth!
The peace He promised is our true desire.
And will be achieved once it's love
our hearts sincerely acquire.

Merry Christmas everyone!
PRAYER FOR AMERICA
O Thou kind Lord! This gathering is turning to thee. These hearts are radiant with Thy love. These minds and spirits are exhilarated by the message of Thy glad-tidings. O God! Let this American democracy become glorious in spiritual degrees even as it has aspired to material degrees, and render this just government victorious. Confirm this revered nation to upraise the standard of the oneness of humanity, to promulgate the Most Great Peace, to become thereby most glorious and praiseworthy among all the nations of the world. O God! This American nation is worthy of Thy favors and is deserving of Thy mercy. Make it precious and near to Thee through Thy bounty and bestowal.
“If the learned and worldly-wise men of this age were to allow mankind to inhale the fragrance of fellowship and love, every understanding heart would apprehend the meaning of true liberty, and discover the secret of undisturbed peace and absolute composure.”
