The Christmas story of the birth of Christ is told, sung, portrayed also in many ways as in these happy Birthday Jesus videos featuring the narration of Burl Ives and the singing voice of 4 year old Avery Winter.
A Christmas Prayer
Help us remember the birth of Jesus,
that we may share in the song
of the angels,
the gladness of the shepherds,
and worship of the wise men.
Close the door of hate and open the door of love all over the world. Let kindness come with every gift and good desires with every greeting. Deliver us from evil by the blessing which Christ brings, and teach us to be merry with clear hearts.
May the Christmas morning make us happy to be thy children, and Christmas evening bring us to our beds with grateful thoughts, forgiving and forgiven, for Jesus' sake. Amen.
