12/31/23 Weekly Messenger

Hancock UCC Weekly Messenger for December 31, 2023


Infant holy, infant lowly, for His bed a cattle stall;

Oxen lowing, little knowing, Christ the babe is Lord of all.

Swift are winging angels singing, noëls ringing, tidings bringing:

Christ the babe is Lord of all, Christ the babe is Lord of all.
