People, look east. The time is near
Of the crowning of the year.
Make your house fair as you are able,
Trim the hearth and set the table.
People, look east and sing today:
Love, the guest, is on the way.
Such deep thanks to all who have trimmed hearth and set table around the Church of the Nativity preparing for the great feast of the Nativity, of Jesus coming into the world. To the Decorating Committee and their helpers, the choir, the Altar Guild, those involved in youth ministry, the Tuesday Men, and so many more–our deep thanks to all, and our hope that their work helps us to sing today: Love, the guest, is on the way.
