Homilies, Musings, and What-not from a Lutheran Pastor

Blessed Feast of Our Lord's Epiphany!
"Behold, the Lord, the Ruler has come, and the kingdom and the power and the glory are in His hand."
Such a tiny hand to hold all that, but the Magi confess it as they bow before the holy Child upon the Blessed Virgin's lap and offer to Him their gifts.
With joy we sing with them on this day:
O Morning Star, how fair and bright!
You shine with God's own truth and light,
Aglow with grace and mercy!
Of Jacob's race, King David's Son,
Our Lord and Master You have won
Our hearts to serve You only.
Great and glorious
Rich in blessing!
Rule and might o'er all possessing! (LSB 395:1)
