In those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that all the world should be registered. This was the first census taken while Quirinius was governing Syria. And everyone went to register, each to his own town. And Joseph also went up from Galilee, out of the town of Nazareth, into Judea, to the town of David, which is called Bethlehem, because he was from the house and family line of David. He went to be registered with Mary, his wife, who was pledged to him in marriage and was expecting a child. (Luke 2:1-5 EHV)
Hymn ELH 109:1-2 Hark the Glad Sound! The Savior Comes
Hark the glad sound! The Savior comes,
The Savior promised long;
Let ev’ry heart prepare a throne
And ev’ry voice a song.
He comes the pris’ners to release,
In Satan’s bondage held.
The gates of brass before Him burst,
The iron fetters yield.
Heavenly Father, thank You for fulfilling all Your promises and sending Your Son to save me from sin, death and the power of the devil. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
