Because everybody's sick of Matthew and Luke at this time of year (Mark starts with the ministry of John the Baptist and doesn't do a nativity story). And, honestly? John got it most right out of the four of them. Stables and shepherds and kings are great and all, but the Light is what Christmas--and Christianity--are really supposed to be about, for us.

in principio erat Verbum et Verbum erat apud Deum et Deus erat Verbum
hoc erat in principio apud Deum
omnia per ipsum facta sunt et sine ipso factum est nihil quod factum est
in ipso vita erat et vita erat lux hominum

...

In the beginning was the Word: and the Word was with God: and the Word was God.
The same was in the beginning with God.
All things were made by him: and without him was made nothing that was made.
In him was life: and the life was the light of men.

I'm leaving this one unfiltered in the hopes that some random person has heard the song I'm looking for.

It's a song my brother and I sang in elementary school religion class during Advent. The title is "Mary Said Yes to God." The lyrics I can remember are:

Mary said 'yes' to God, one day.
Mary said 'yes' to God.

[mumble mumble mumble, words I don't remember]

And in the meantime, 
And in between time,
Mary said 'yes' to God.

The song was part of our religion textbooks, and there was even a recording on the record that came with the teacher's edition. It's been bugging my mother and me for twenty years, and a Google search turned up nothing. So I turn to the group mind that is the Internet. Does this ring a bell for anybody else out there
