Prayer: before a Creche

Lord Jesus, together with the shepherds
we draw near to your crib.
We contemplate you, wrapped in swaddling cloths
and lying in the manger.

O Babe of Bethlehem,
we adore you in silence with Mary,
your ever-Virgin Mother.
To you be glory and praise forever,
O Savior of the world. Amen.
