When He came to us as man,
the Son of God scattered the darkness of this world,
and filled this holy night (day) with His glory.
May the God of infinite goodness
scatter the darkness of sin
and brighten your hearts with holiness.
God sent His angels to shepherds
to herald the great joy of our Saviour’s birth.
May He fill you with joy
and make you heralds of His gospel.
When the Word became man,
earth was joined to heaven.
May He give you His peace and good will,
and fellowship with all the heavenly host.
May almighty God bless you,
the Father, and the Son, + and the Holy Spirit.
