O come all ye faithful, joyful and triumphant.

Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters;
and you who have no money, come, buy and eat!

O come, ye, o come ye to Bethlehem.

Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.
Why spend money on what is not bread, and your labor on what does not satisfy?

Come and behold Him, born the king of angels.

Listen, listen to me, and eat what is good, and your soul will delight in the richest of fare. Give ear and come to me; hear me, that your soul may live.
I will make an everlasting covenant with you, my faithful love promised to David.

O come let us adore Him

Seek the Lord while he may be found; call on him while he is near.
Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts.
Let him turn to the Lord, and he will have mercy on him,
and to our God, for he will freely pardon.

O come let us adore Him

"For my thoughts are not your thoughts,
neither are your ways my ways," declares the Lord. As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.

O come let us adore Him

As the rain and the snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth:
It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it.

Christ the Lord.

Scripture taken from Isaiah 55

What a lovely post! This was a creatively interwoven set of scriptures and I enjoyed it.

And "Adeste Fidelis" has always been one of my favorit carols.

Thank you so much for your valuable feedback on my "lumps of coal" post. I needed the encouragement. God bless you and Merry Christmas - Marsha
