Christmas Eve Candlelight Service

Meditation by Rev. Matthew J. van Maastricht and Candle Lighting

 

Choir Anthem: "Go to Him in Bethlehem"

Go to him in Bethlehem, go to him in Bethlehem.
Shepherds, lift your eyes, see the angels come with heaven’s glory.
All through your lives, you will go and tell this wondrous story:
how the angels came to you to announce the holy truth,
that a Child is born and he is Christ the Lord.

Go to him in Bethlehem, see this mighty wonder.
Go to him in Bethlehem, see the holy Child.
Worship him in Bethlehem and bow down in praise.
He is Christ the Lord. He is Christ the Lord.

Shepherds, see the Child. Tell the people all the angels told you.
Stay with him a while. Let the holy presence come enfold you.
You will celebrate the day when the angels showed the way.
You will shout with joy that he is Christ the Lord.

O Come, let us adore him. O come, let us adore him.  

O come and go to him in Bethlehem, see this mighty wonder.
Go to him in Bethlehem, see the holy Child.
Worship him in Bethlehem and bow down in praise.
He is Christ the Lord. He is Christ the Lord,
Rise up and praise, rise and go to him.
