Christmas Text – Responsive Reading

P:  In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.
C:  He was with God in the beginning.

P:  Oh, come, let us adore Him,
C: Christ the Lord!
P:  Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made.
C:  In him was life, and that life was the light of men.

P:  Oh, come, let us adore Him,
C: Christ the Lord!  
P:  The light shines in the darkness, but the darkness has not understood it.
C:  He was in the world, and though the world was made through him, the world did not recognize him.

P:  Oh, come, let us adore Him,
C: Christ the Lord!
P:  He came to that which was his own, but his own did not receive him.
C:  Yet to all who received him, to those who believed in his name, he gave the right to become children of God

P:  Oh, come, let us adore Him,
C: Christ the Lord!
P:  The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us.
C:  We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.

P:  Oh, come, let us adore Him,
C: Christ the Lord!
P:  From the fullness of his grace we have all received one blessing after another.
C:  For the law was given through Moses; grace and truth came through Jesus Christ.

P:  Oh, come, let us adore Him,
C: Christ the Lord!
