May Christmas come to us

The Light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not overcome it.

May we cry out to the Lord in the barren cave of our heart:

Come, O Immanuel! Save us, O Good One!
We have no one but You;
Come, be born in us,
Come, O Christmas!
Root of Jesse,
Come, break
the stony ground of our hearts,
Take root in us!
Come with Your Holy Mother
Bring us to Your cradle;
Come, so we can worship You,
Born of Your Virgin Mother Mary,
