by Robert Louis Sevenson
Loving Father, help us remember the birth of Jesus, that we may share in the song of the angels, the gladness of the sheperds, and worship of the wise men.
Close the door of hate and open the door of love all over the world.
Let kindness come with every gift and good desires with every greeting.
Deliver us from evil by the blessing which Christ brings, and teach us to be merry with clear hearts.
May the Christmas morning
make us happy to be thy children, and Christmas evening bring us to our
beds with grateful thoughts, forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus' sake. Amen.
