“The highest, most holy

Light of light eternal

Born of a virgin, a mortal he comes;

Son of the Father

Now in flesh appearing

O Come, let us adore him,

Christ the Lord!”

“Shout for joy to the Lord, all the earth, burst into jubilant song with music; make music to the Lord with the harp, with the harp and the sound of singing, with trumpets and the blast of the ram’s horn—shout for joy before the Lord, the King.” (Psalm 98:  4-6)
