The Dawn Breaks

“In the tender compassion of our God
the dawn from on high shall break upon us,
to shine on those who dwell in darkness and the shadow of death,
and to guide our feet into the way of peace.”
(Luke 1:78-79)

Thank You, Lord, for coming to us as a little babe born in Bethlehem, uniting our humanity with Your divinity.
Come, Lord, we pray, this very moment, into our hearts, and make us love as You love.
We look forward, Lord, to that day when You come again in glory to wrap up creation, make us all one in You, and present us to Your heavenly Father.

“The Lord is in His Holy house” —
Mysterious habitation!
I feel His presence here within
And offer my oblation.
Keep burning, incense of my soul!
Keep cleansing me, O Laver!
I want to serve and praise my God
Forever and forever!
— Anne Ortlund
