Not to Kings and Rulers

Advent 11

 

Luke 2: 8-9

Not to kings and rulers did the heralds come

Not to palaces of gold but to a lowly hillside

Where shepherds humbly heard what the angels had to say

And faithfully went to worship the child where He lay

 

Not to the wise and wealthy did the Angels first appear

Nor to religious leaders did they tell their greatest news

That Mary in a stable to a child had given birth

That God himself from highest heaven had come to dwell on earth.
