The people who walked in darkness have seen a great light; those who dwelt in a land of deep darkness, on them has light shone. (Isaiah 9:2 ESV)
Hymn ELH 198:1,6 O Christ, Our True and Only Light
O Christ, our true and only Light,
Enlighten those who sit in night;
Let those afar now hear Thy voice
And in Thy fold with us rejoice.
So they with us may evermore
Such grace with wond’ring thanks adore
And endless praise to Thee be giv’n
By all Thy Church in earth and heav’n.
Heavenly Father, thank You for sending the true light, Your Son, Jesus Christ, into this world. Allow the light of truth to shine through Your Word that many more may believe. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
