Christmas Coming

This Christmas, Lord,
Take a corner of my life
And steal in.....
Invade the busyness of my doing
With the quiet of your coming.
 
This Christmas, Lord,
Take a corner of my life
And steal in......
Illuminate the darkness of my thinking
With the brightness of your seeing.
 
This Christmas, Lord,
Take a corner of my heart
And steal in......
Infuse the coldness of my loving
With the warmth of your Being.
 
This Christmas, Lord,
As at Bethlehem’s stable,
Come and steal in......
Take the unprepared places of my life
And make them fit for your dwelling.
