A Stirring in the Stable

Lord Christ,
I hear your call from the stable,
From a baby in the manger straw.

It's a tender summons,
With an angels' chorus,
Beneath the brightest of stars.

Open my ears to your teaching:

To love the unlovable,
To defend the defenseless. 
To forgive the unforgivable.

To share your Spirit,
Living selflessly,
Loving unconditionally. 

To believe when doubt overwhelms,
Hoping when things seem hopeless.

Change my heart, Jesus!
Your Kingdom comes this Christmas!
