Christmas Prayer of Praise and Adoration

Christmas prayer adapted from Augustine:

All praise to You, O King of Heaven and earth, this Christmas Sunday
For the incarnation;
As Adam was brought forth from the uncursed soil,
so You were born of a virgin;
When man’s Maker was made man,
that He Who made the Milky Way, might nurse at His mother’s breast;
the Bread hunger,
the Fountain thirst,
the Light sleep,
the Way be a tired Traveler;
the Truth slandered by false witness,
the Teacher flogged,
the Foundation hung upon a wooden beam;
that Strength weaken;
that the Healer be wounded;
and Life die.
For these great mysteries and for beautiful gospel of peace
we give You thanks today and forever.
