Christmas blessing

God is with us.
The Beloved comes as a child,
tender and willing,
in deepest love.

No power in our hands can undo
this great gentleness;
no tragedy can overcome this light.

May the deep peace
of God's gentle presence
awaken you to wonder
and fill you with love.

May the deep blessing
of God's peace with us
bring you peace
with all living things.

May the tender love of God
bring you joy.

Alleluia!
