Christmas Thoughts

Dec 2017    

I shall think, then, of a silent night
when a star shone a wondrous light

To us unknown was born a Child
that God and man may reconcile

This whole angelic gospel went forth
to lowly men who found its worth

The glorious news to us it brought
a hope that the weary world long sought

Amidst the gloom of life today
Prayer and thanks we ought to say

Adore Him, fellow sinner I beseech
His words we heed, sing and preach

For the Dayspring came to set us free
His children to Heaven, where we shall be.
