If it were a question of excessive access, I would not know where to begin, but as it is not, then we should proceed in the current vein.

The peace of the Lord be upon you and upon your house. Kindness, grace, mercy, and truth as well. The lord is well pleased with his servant and will not repent. Therefore the most excellent Theophilus greets you.

Do not be afraid, for behold I bring you good tidings of great joy which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And in His name all people shall be blessed. Come, let us worship God our King. Let us adore His holy name, which is high above the heavens. Be ye lifted up ye everlasting gates and the King of Glory shall enter in. Who is this King of Glory? The Lord strong and mighty, strong and mighty in battle.

The Lord has sworn and will not repent. He has made straight the desert and plain the rough places. Do not fear evil tidings. Enter into your sabbath rest in his name, which is high and lifted up by the cherubim and seraphim, the messengers who do his will, hearing the voice of his word. He whose name is high above the heavens has sworn and will not repent.

What is man that the Lord of hosts is mindful of him? He is made a little lower than the angels who long to look into his salvation. Salvation which shall be accomplished according to the voice of his word, when every knee shall bow and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father, by the precious and life giving cross, through the power of the Holy Spirit. With the saints give rest to the souls of Thy servants, where there is no more sickness nor sorrow and no more sighing, but life everlasting. Thou alone art immortal, who hast created and fashioned me, saying unto me, “earth thou art and unto the same earth shalt though return”, whither we mortals all shall go. Do not weep, but announce the resurrection to the apostles. Holy, holy, holy art Thou, Oh Lord. Allelujah.
