Fr Gilbert Shaw’s: Bethlehem

BETHLEHEM Angels chorusing,

God’s love outpouring for man’s receiving

Christ’s birthday.


God’s love compassioning, on man’s deforming,

is recreating

by Christ’s way:


Through Christ grace giving for faith’s receiving,

new life imparting

in Christ’s way.


We approach with trembling feet the mystery of redemption to which we are drawn in every Eucharist as we are taken up into Christ, praying that he may be truly born in the Bethlehem of our hearts.
