Lessons and Hymns for The Nativity of Our Lord A

These are the Scripture readings you will hear this coming Sunday:

Isaiah 52:7-10
Hebrews 1:1-6
John 1:1-14

The Living and Life-Giving Word of God Dwells Among Us in the Flesh

The Lord sends out His ministers of the Gospel to make disciples “of all the nations,” so that “all the ends of the earth shall see the salvation of our God.” The Lord has “bared his holy arm” in the incarnate Christ (Is. 52:7, 10). The child in the manger, born of the Virgin Mary, is the very Word of God, the only begotten Son of the Father, “whom he appointed the heir of all things, through whom also he created the world” (Heb. 1:2). As “all things were made through him” (John 1:3), so are all things redeemed and made new in Him. In His body of flesh and blood, we behold “the radiance of the glory of God” (Heb. 1:3), “glory as of the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14). He dwells among us in peace, that we might have life and light and salvation in Him. For by His Word of the Gospel, we are born again as the children of God, bearing His name and sharing His eternal life.

These are the hymns we will sing:

Infant Holy, Infant Lowly (LSB 393)
A Great and Mighty Wonder (LSB 383)
Joy to the Word (LSB 387)
Of the Father’s Love Begotten (LSB 384)
Go Tell It on the Mountain (LSB 388)
