Havergal: Christ is come to be thy Light

Thursday, December 24, 2020
    Christmas Eve
    In him was life, and that life was the light of men. The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.
    —John 1:4-5 (NIV)
Christ is come to be thy Light,
Shining through the darkest night;
He will make thy pilgrim way
Shine unto the perfect day.
Take the message! let it be
Full of Christmas joy to thee!
    ... Frances Ridley Havergal (1836-1879), The Poetical Works of Frances Ridley Havergal, New York: E.P. Dutton & Co., 1888, p. 168 (see the book)
    See also John 1:4-5; Isa. 9:1-2; Mic. 7:8; John 1:9; 8:12; Eph. 5:8-14
Quiet time reflection:
    Lord, You are light and life.
