An Advent Liturgy: Day 18

An Advent Liturgy: Day 18

At that time the Roman emperor, Augustus, decreed that a census should be taken throughout the Roman Empire. (This was the first census taken when Quirinius was governor of Syria.)
All returned to their own ancestral towns to register for this census.
And because Joseph was a descendant of King David, he had to go to Bethlehem in Judea, David’s ancient home. He traveled there from the village of Nazareth in Galilee.
He took with him Mary, his fiancée, who was now obviously pregnant.

At times our road is hard
Yet You are with us all the way

At time our road is long
Yet You are with us all the way

You comfort us in our discomfort
You endure when we cannot
You are strength when our strength fails
You are strong when we are not

Though this road at times is bumpy
And our path is hard to see
You’re the light that lights our footsteps
You’re our guide, our hope, our peace.

So keep us always on your footpath
Though the route is hard at times
We will walk this road together
With You ahead
Behind
Beside.

Amen
