So Joseph also went up from the town of Nazareth in Galilee to Judea, to Bethlehem the town of David… While they were there, the time came for the baby to be born, and she gave birth to her firstborn, a son. She wrapped him in cloths and placed him in a manger, because there was no room for them in the inn.

And there were shepherds living out in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them,

“Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of
great joy
that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord.”

Luke 2

Joy to the world!
The Lord has come
Let earth receive her King
Let every heart prepare Him room
And heaven and nature sing,
and heaven and nature sing,
and heaven,
and heaven and nature sing.
