And then will I profess unto them I never knew you: depart from me ye that work iniquity.

Hark! the herald-angels sing Glory to the new-born King; Peace on earth and mercy mild; God and sinners reconciled. Christ by highest heavn adored Christ the everlasting Lord Late in time behold Him come Offspring of a virgins womb! Veiled in flesh the Godhead see; Hail th incarnate Deity! Pleased as man with men to ppear Jesus our Immanul here. Hail the heavn-born Prince of peace! Hail the Sun of righteousness! Light and life to all He brings Risn with healing in His wings. Mild He lays His glory by Born that man no more may die; Born to raise the sons of earth Born to give them second birth.

Adams likeness now efface Stamp Thine image in its place: Second Adam from above Reinstate us in Thy love. Amen.

Israel Zangwill Category: Christianity
Following the way of Jesus Christ and doing all we can for His cause and for our fellow men expresses something of our worship in action. But how to give Him a present to express our love is a bit of a problem. How can you give God anything when He owns everything? But does He? How about that power to choose that precious free will that He has given to every living personality and which He so greatly respects? That is the only present we can give our selves with all our powers of spirit mind and body willingly freely given because we love Him. That is the best and highest worship that you and I can offer and I am sure that it is this above all that God most highly appreciates.
