One Holy Night

Adoration of the Child

One Holy Night

Holy Infant of the stable
You shattered my darkness
In one Holy Night.

Though, tyrants and terrors
Threaten and pursue
Peace shines forth in Your angelic Light.

I, too, shiver in the cold,
As enemies draw near,
Simply trusting, in my plight.

Taking heart that angels ring me ’round.
Trusting that You will be ever near,
Hallowed, Holy, God of Might.

Two Images, One Lamb

Two Images, One Lamb

Agnus Dei,
Lamb of God,
Meek, perfect, humble,
Oblation, acceptable and sacrificial.

Arnion,
The Lamb, standing, as if slain,
Conquering , and at Sabbath Rest,
Resurrected!
