O God, you have caused this holy night to shine with the brightness of the true Light: Grant that we, who have known the mystery of that Light on earth, may also enjoy him perfectly in heaven; where with you and the Holy Spirit he lives and reigns, one God, in glory everlasting. Amen.
'Fear not for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people'. The angel appears to the shepherds in the snowy hills above Bethlehem in glass by Margaret Edith Aldrich Rope, 1920s, now at Kesgrave Holy Family, Ipswich, Suffolk.
