Gloria in Excelsis Deo

One of my favorite lyrics from Andrew Peterson’s excellent Christmas album Behold the Lamb of God is from the opening song, “Gather round, Ye children Come:”

Gather round, remember now,
How Creation held its breath
How it let out a sigh,
And filled up the sky with the angels

Heaven bursting forth with praise to God Incarnate stretches the imagination! The message of their song? Glory to God and peace with God. This is what the Incarnation means, and what our church considered on Sunday morning. You can listen to the sermon here.
