After The United Methodist Book of Worship (1992), of The United Methodist Church:

God of every nation and people, from the beginning of creation you have made manifest your love.  When our need for a Savior was great you sent your Son to be born of a woman.  To our lives he brings joy and peace, justice, mercy, and love.  Lord, bless all who look upon this manger.  May it remind us of the humble birth of Jesus, and raise up our thoughts to him, who is God-with-us and Savior of all, and who lives and reigns for ever and ever.  Amen.
