Final Blessing

Dear Friends,

This Devotional has been a labor of love and has been part of a personal journey of mine toward the celebration of Christ’s birth.  I want to thank each of you for following this journey with me and hope it has blessed your days as you also anticipated the birth of Christ and look forward to his coming again.  God bless each of you as you celebrate Christ’s love with one another.

Saturday, December 26, 2020-Let There Be Peace on Earth

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me

Let There Be Peace on Earth
The peace that was meant to be

With God as our Father
Brothers all are we

Let me walk with my brother
In perfect harmony.

Let peace begin with me
Let this be the moment now.

With every step I take
Let this be my solemn vow

To take each moment and live
Each moment in peace eternally

Let there be peace on earth
And let it begin with me

Words:  Sy Miller, Jill Jackson-Miller

Friday, December 25, 2020 Christmas Night-What Child Is This

What Child is this, who, laid to rest On Mary’s lap is sleeping?

Whom angels greet with anthems sweet, While shepherds watch are keeping?

This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:

Haste, Haste to bring Him laud, The Babe, the Son of Mary!

 

Why lies He in such mean estate, Where ox and ass are feeding?

The King of kings salvation brings; Let loving hearts enthroned Him.

This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:

Haste, Haste to bring Him laud, The Babe, the Son of Mary!

 

So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh, Come, peasant, king to own Him;

The King of kings salvation brings; Let loving hearts enthroned Him.

This, this is Christ the King, Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:

Haste, Haste to bring Him laud, The Babe, the Son of Mary!

William C. Dix, 1837-1898
