Light is sown for the righteous,
and joy for the upright in heart.
Rejoice in the Lord, O you righteous,
and give thanks to His Holy Name!
– Psalm 97:11-12
To men and women of good will, Jesus’ birth is indeed good news! Suddenly there is light where before there was darkness; joy to push desperation aside; hope where, perhaps, there was none.
King of Kings, Lord of Lords,
thank You for the joy and peace You bring into my heart!
My soul magnifies You, O Lord,
and my spirit rejoices in You, my God, my Saviour.
Thank You for the great joy that only You bring,
and for changing darkness into light.
I praise and thank You, Jesus,
for You have truly made me glad!
