                             AN ADVENT EVENING PRAYER

                          on December 1, 2004, Wednesday
                      5:30 in the afternoon at the College Chapel


I sing the birth was born tonight
the author both of life and light; 
The angels so did sound it, 
and, like the ravished shepherds said, 
who saw the light and were afraid, 
yet searched, and true they found it - 
the Son of God, the eternal king, 
that did us all salvation bring, 
and freed our souls from danger. 
He whom the whole world could not take, 
The Word, which heaven and earth did make, 
Was now laid in a manager. 
The father's wisdom willed it so, 
the Son's obedience knew no "no";
both wills are of one nature, 
and, as that wisdom had decreed,
The Word was now made flesh indeed, 
and took on Him our nature. 
What comfort by him we do win, 
Who made himself the price of sin,
To make us heirs of glory!
To see this babe, all innocence, 
A martyr born in our defense, 
How can man forget that story? 
                 
-Ben Jonson
