Christmas Lament (Tune: St. Louis)
Tune: St. Louis
It sometimes may seem, as servants of the church in music and worship -- or as Sunday School teachers, secretaries, day-care providers, and parents -- that the demands placed upon us during Advent and Christmas make our own observance and celebration of the season difficult or even impossible. In the pressure of extra services and rehearsals, parties, pageants, and shopping, it is all too easy for us to lose sight of why we prepare for and celebrate Jesus' birth.
