“Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger.” LUKE 2:12
How thoughts of Christmas lighten the pathway,
Though evenings shorten and shadows fall
And once again we warmly recall
A little babe cradled in a stall.
Sent with such love to a dying world,
To brighten the future for you and me
And offer us a life more rewarding
With grace to set the spirit free.
Endow us with strength to meet every trial
We may encounter each passing day
And as we turn to Him in faith
He’s ever present to lead the way.
Now little children are filled with expectancy
And as we plan to make their day,
May we greatly implant the story
Of the babe upon the hay.
