one night

If you would be a Christian, be as the Shepherds were;
following their calling faithfully,
until called to a higher purpose
one night
they became apostles, prophets, saints, martyrs,
witnesses to the wonder of the coming of the One true God,
maker of all things,
come to dwell among us, men and women and girl and boy:
for us and for our salvation,
that the life we live now,
we live not by our own lights,
but by him who is Light—
the light of the world,
and through living in Him,
shepherd or saints or both at once,
we might bring that light to our corner of the world
and glory to God in the highest heaven.
