Artist's Description

Graphite on illustration board. My Christmas greeting, 2002. The infant is drawn from a reference photo I took of my son’s first Christmas, 6 weeks. He’s now 21 years old. :)

Inspired by the Christmas song of the same title, written by Chris Rice. The grapes and wheat are symbolic of the Eucharist, and the holly head wreath symbolic of the crown of thorns and crucifixion.

I made this image for our parish church to use for printed Christmas materials.

Merry Christmas and Peace on Earth! ~ Alice

Welcome to Our World

Tears are falling, hearts are breaking
How we need to hear from God
You’ve been promised, we’ve been waiting

Welcome Holy Child
Welcome Holy Child

Hope that you don’t mind our manger
How I wish we would have known
But long-awaited Holy Stranger
Make Yourself at home
Please make Yourself at home
Bring Your peace into our violence
Bid our hungry souls be filled
Word now breaking Heaven’s silence

Welcome to our world
Welcome to our world

Fragile finger sent to heal us
Tender brow prepared for thorn
Tiny heart whose blood will save us
Unto us is born
Unto us is born
So wrap our injured flesh around You
Breathe our air and walk our sod
Rob our sin and make us holy

Perfect Son of God
Perfect Son of God
Welcome to our world

lyrics ~ Chris Rice
