Magnificat hymn – December 19,2019

The moon with borrowed light gives witness to the sun,

Discretely fading with the night when morning has begun.

John’s borrowed light was drawn from heaven’s vibrant rays,

His life a witness to the dawn of Christ’s approaching blaze.

The clouds of sin yet mask Earth’s tangled, stubbly ground,

And O how many hearts still ask where God’s clear path is found.

For borrowed light we pray so we may be a sign

That points to Christ, the truth, the way, the life, the light divine.
