The Revealing

Thy nativity, O Christ our God, hath given rise to the light of knowledge in the world; For they who did worship the stars did learn from them to worship Thee, O Sun of Justice, and to know that thou didst come from the East of the Highest, Glory to Thee, O Lord. -- Triparion of the Nativity of Our Lord

We sang Eleanor Farjeon's "People, look east" at our Lessons and Carols, and I thought of that when I read this.


"People, look east and sing today/Love, the Lord, is on the way."
