o come let us adore him

The Blind Boys of Alabama ( have a version of "O Come All Ye Faithful" that has helped me in a brief time of devotion, which I share with you.

Read the following words, slowly:

O come, all ye faithful
joyful and triumphant
O come ye,
O come ye to Bethlehem.
Come and behold him,
born the King of Angels;
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
O come, let us adore him,
Christ the Lord.

The hymn is first an invitation to come to the place where Jesus is...take a moment to go to that place. The hymn is also an invitation to look closely at him. What do you see? The hymn is finally an invitation to be humble in his presence.

Take five minutes today, and go to a place where you can be in the presence of Jesus. Stay there, and visualize him. Close by offering the day to him. "He must increase", John confesses, "I must decrease" (John 3. 30).

O come, let us adore him.
