The refrain of O Come, All Ye Faithful is as important as the verses.  It calls the faithful people of God to witness this thing that God has done, and to come and adore our newborn King.

 

O come, let us adore him,

O come, let us adore him,

O come, let us adore him,

Christ the Lord.

 

Luke 2:13-15

And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest heaven, and on earth peace among those whom he favors!”  When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go now to Bethlehem and see this thing that has taken place, which the Lord has made known to us.”

 

Reflections

The heavenly choir sang, “Glory to God in the highest!”  What does that mean?  What does it mean to glorify God?

 

The song calls us to come and adore Jesus.  What does it mean to adore?


What earthly things draw out from us a sense of adoration?

 

Why is it important for us to adore Jesus most of all?

 

Prayer

All glory and honor and praise to you, O God, who was, and is, and is to come.  You are so mighty and powerful and holy, and it is my honor and privilege to call you friend and Savior, and simply to say your name.  Thank you Lord, through Jesus I pray.  Amen.
