The collect for Christmas Day:

God our Father,

your Word has come among us

in the Holy Child of Bethlehem.

Grant that the light of faith

may illumine our hearts

and shine in our words and deeds;

through him who is Christ our Lord,

who lives and reigns

with you and the Holy Spirit,

one God, now and for ever.
