Christmas Hope

four hundred years of silence, broken by a baby’s cry;  a Deliverer for all people after so many years gone by.

God’s promise fulfilled, just as His Word had said– now the Living Word lying in a manger bed

heralds hope for all who hear, bringing His peace, God again draws near; to show His love that we might believe, the baby’s healing we’ve longed to receive.

God’s voice once again is heard, walking among us– the Living Word.  Hope renewed, redemption at hand,  God has come for every man.

that first night as the Baby slept, heaven rejoiced at the promise kept, while knowing the Messiah would later bleed, the only One who could fill our need

for a Savior to pay our price and He had come to sacrifice, to reconcile and make me right, this is the hope born Christmas night.

This Living hope abides with us now, waiting for every knee to bow, at Jesus’ name and then we’ll see– this world as it was meant to be.

Peace is coming as Jesus planned, when the dwelling of God will be with man. Come again Lord Jesus, we’re waiting still,  knowing Your promise You will fulfill.

Our hope You delivered that first Christmas night, we wait on You to make all things right.  for now we remember, we rejoice, we praise — trusting in Your perfect ways.

I thank You, God, for this gift you gave; long awaited Messiah come to save, me and all who would believe;  Your perfect pardon to receive.

oh let me remember and share the shepards’ joy,  may I be filled again with thankfulness and wonder at the birth of this baby boy.

“Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign:  The virgin will be with child and will give birth to a son, and will call Him Immanuel.”  (Isaiah 7:14)

“The Word became flesh and made His dwelling among us.  We have seen His glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth.”  (John 1:14)

sincerely,      Grace Day
