The First Chill of Winter’s Approach

As I feel the first chill of the vanguard of winter, and as I look at the forecast and see lows in the 30s, my heart swells with cheer. Yes, it will warm again before winter’s arrival, but I rejoice with every taste of the season to come.

Adeste fideles, laeti triumphantes:
Venite, venite in Bethlehem:
Natum videte Regem angelorum.
Venite adoremus, venite adoremus,
venite adoremus Dominum.

En grege relicto, humiles ad cunas
Vocati pastores approperant:
Et nos ovanti gradu festinemus.
Venite adoremus, venite adoremus,
venite adoremus Dominum.

Aeterni Parentis splendorem aeternum
Velatum sub carne videbimus:
Deum infantem pannis involutum.
Venite adoremus, venite adoremus,
venite adoremus Dominum.
