Lord, as you dispelled

the fears of a maiden mother

by whispering the promise of your presence,

so banish the world’s misconceptions

about you and your ways.

Come to each of us.

Roll back the clouds of doubt and pessimism.

Fill our individual lives with servant love

and direct the nations to humble awareness;

for you are God,

rich in mercy,

strong in righteousness,

ready to make your home with us

now and for ever.
