Ave Rex Hominum

In the beginning was the Word
and the Word was with God
and the Word was God.
He was with God in the beginning.

The Word became flesh
and made his dwelling among us

In him was life,
and that life was
the light of man.

~ John 1:1-2, 14, 4-5


Led by the Light
of Faith serenely beaming,
with glowing hearts,
by his cradle we stand.

Led by the Light
of a Star sweetly gleaming,
here come the wise men
from Orient land.

The King of Kings
lay thus in lowly manger;
In all our trials,
born to be our friend.

He knows your need:
to your weakness
He is no stranger.
Behold your King!

Before him lowly bend.

~ O Holy Night
