Shepherds on a hillside, angels and a song;
A bright and shining star that led wise men along.
A mom and a dad with no shelter for the night;
A tiny new baby who came to bear light.
These are the characters of that first Christmas Day. . .
That took place so long ago and so far away.
The Bible tells the story with wonder and with joy,
Of the love and grace which came with that tiny baby boy.
A gift freely given for all to receive;
A gracious gift from God to all who believe.
So when the times are dark and the night seems long. . .
Remember the star and the angelsí song.
This child was born for you and for me,
This child of love. . .and eternity. (elf - Christmas 2009)
May your Christmas be blessed with love and joy, wonder and hope.
And may the New Year embrace you with grace and peace.
See you in church!
