You Made It This Far

Autumn morning Oct 06 2013_1014 (1)
You made it this far
though the road was rough,
though trials you faced
seemed more than enough.

Though some days were lonely
and all looked bleak,
you trusted the Saviour
to guide your feet.

At times when it seemed
you could go on no longer,
His word came through and
helped you to be stronger.

He was beside you,
the Star in your night;
so true and so faithful,
Whose burden is light.

He promised to be with you,
right to the end.
Keep trusting in Jesus,
Your Saviour and Friend!

Lowly King

nativity scene

 ~*~

He didn’t need to find a place
All decked with silver and gold,
Adorned with riches and splendour –
Too wonderful to behold.
~
He didn’t seek the praise of man
Or a life of fame and glory.
He came to earth as love, unveiled;
His life became a story.
~
The darkness of this world could not
Prevent His light, so holy.
From heaven, He came, the Prince of Peace;
His heart was meek and lowly.
~
The wise men saw a bright light shine
Announcing the birth of a king.
They knew the Babe was heaven-sent
And brought their gifts to Him.
~
Jesus, Saviour of all mankind ~
Gift from God above
The King of kings, new life would bring
To a world in need of love.
~
How wonderful! How precious
That God’s righteous, holy Son

Should come to show us how to live
And the people we could become!
~
All He seeks is a place within
Our hearts, where He may dwell
For Christ is the reason for Christmas ~
…The story we love to tell.

(Isaiah 9:6; Matthew 2:1-12; Revelation 19:16)

In this season, we love to retell and celebrate the
wonderful story of His birth and exalt His Name,
for He is the centre of our joy and rejoicing! Amen
