Heart Preparation

On the eve of Your birth

Did the world sigh

At the coming relief

Sure to bring peace to the hearts of men?

On the eve of Your birth

Did the angels dance

Shimmer with light in the heavens?

On the eve of Your birth

Did the world grow still

Anticipation catching its breath?

On the eve of Your birth

Salvation surely stirred

Evil surely smirked

At the impending recompense!

One the eve of Your birth

Years and years later

The world changes because of You

Work ceases, labor winds down

At last to celebrate Truth.

On the eve of Your birth

I wonder why God

Would save the world this way…

On the eve of Your birth

Please ready our hearts

To welcome You, Jesus,

Like, indeed, a little babe.
