Surely, from now on all generations will call me blessed;
for the Mighty One has done great things for me,
and holy is his name. His mercy is for those who fear him
from generation to generation. — Luke 1:48–50
Guardian of peace
The angel sent a message of joy
from God of Heaven above,
holy light gleams on earth
where creation is born; new magical place,
where dreams come true.
The angel knelt and told me
“I love you, let mortal flesh keep silence,”
who shall wear the robe and crown?
Thy good brothers all are we.
The angel sprinkled silver light,
she touched her harp of gold.
Rejoice to the earth;
ours the Cross, the grave and skies,
from God of Heaven above.
— Andrew Weatherly
