Hark, Hear the Glad Song!
Hark, hear the glad song! the Savior comes,
The Savior who was promised long ago;
Prepare in your heart a throne,
Join in their angelic hymns of praise.
He comes for the broken hearted,
The bleeding soul to cure;
And with the treasures of grace,
To save the humble poor.
MeditationMary gives voice to the rejoicing of the redeemed of the world: "The Mighty One has done great things for me, and holy is His name." Lk. 1:49 Christ was born among the poor and put to death for the salvation of the world. Our Savior comes to raise us up! God bestows on us in Christ all His riches in glory.
PrayerLord, you came to bring life to all the lowly, the afflicted and the poor: Console the homeless, the aging, the hungry and the oppressed.
