The Greatest Blessing of All ~

Blessings come great,
they too come small
and we need to be . . .
thankful for them all.

They come suddenly,
they come unexpected
they come anticipated
or when unsuspected.

Blessings come many,
they too come few
and we need to be . . .
grateful for them too.

They come in the morning,
when new mercies fall
they sometimes just come
when on God’s name we call.

They come in the warmth,
they come in the gloom
they come in winter’s chill
or on summer’s bloom.

Blessings come great,
they too come small
and Jesus is the greatest . . .
blessing of them all!

Ephesians 1:3

Blessed be the God and Father

A Song Of Deliverance ~

Everyone needs a song,
of deliverance . . .
everyone needs Jesus
to make a difference.

Everyone needs a victory,
over the enemy
everyone needs a fortress
that is heavenly.

Everyone needs a defense,
a rock to cling on
everyone needs Jesus
to depend upon.

Everyone needs a tower,
they can run into
everyone needs a trust
that they can pursue.

Everyone needs a song,
of their redemption. . .
everyone needs Jesus
for their salvation!

Isaiah 12:2

Behold, God is my salvation;
I will trust, and not be afraid:
for the Lord Jehovah

my salvation.

I will love thee, O Lord,
my strength.

The Lord is my rock,
and my fortress,
and my deliverer;
my God, my strength,
in whom I will trust;
my buckler,
and the horn of my salvation,
and my high tower.

Abiding ~

If you want the Lord,
to abide in you
then you must . . .
act as in Him too.

If you desire the Lord,
to remain in you
then you gotta . . .
reside in Him too.

If you wish the Lord,
to stay in you
then you should . . .
behave like Him too.

If you trust the Lord,
to live in you
then you better . . .
persist in Him too.

If you want the Lord,
to abide in you
then you must . . .
walk as Him too!

He that saith he abideth
in him ought himself also
so to walk, even as he walked.

I’ve Been Redeemed~

I’ve been liberated,
Jesus has set me free
He paid the penalty
the day He died for me.

I’ve been redeemed,
Jesus paid the ransom
to make room for me
in His Father’s mansion.

I’ve been rescued,
Jesus has delivered me
He paid the price
there upon Calvary’s tree.

I’ve been saved,
Jesus bought my freedom
one day with Him I’ll reside
in His Father’s kingdom.

I’ve been redeemed,
Jesus paid the deficit
so the hope of my salvation . . .
would be sure and definite!

~~~~~~~~~~

1 Peter 1:3-5

Blessed be the God and Father
of our Lord Jesus Christ,
which according to his abundant
mercy hath begotten us again
unto a lively hope by the
resurrection of Jesus Christ
from the dead,

To an inheritance incorruptible,
and undefiled, and that fadeth
not away, reserved in heaven for you,

Who are kept by the power of God
through faith unto salvation ready
to be revealed in the last time.

Deliverance ~

Deliverance,
atonement for sin
forgiveness divine
new life to begin.

Cancellation of debt,
remembering no more
new heart given to all
at salvation’s Door.

Redemption,
condemnation free

unto eternity.

Reconciliation,
rebellion’s settlement
by grace through faith
the only requisite.

Deliverance,
God’s way to deal
with sin’s affects
so Jesus all could heal!

As The Winds Blow ~

When you see a storm,
blowing your way . . .
make sure you’re ready
to swing with the sway.

For you’ll need to be,
on your feet sturdy
so your faith in Jesus
remains fast and steady.

When you see a storm,
out in front of you . . .
make sure you’re prepared
to thrust with the gust.

For you’ll need to be,
strong and resilient
if your trust in God
is to be consistent.

When you see a storm,
as the winds head your way
remember Jesus they’ll obey . . .
when to Him You pray!

And they feared exceedingly,
and said one to another,
What manner of man is this,

Some People Think ~

Some people look down,
their angelic noses . . .
when to others they give
their saintly diagnosis.

They eagerly point out,
things once done in sin
while they boast about
their own restraint within.

Some people think,
they have done no wrong
but will happily talk about
your mistakes all day long.

They brag all about,
the good they have done
from the time they rise
to the setting of the sun.

Some people have forgotten,
we’re all sinners in God’s eyes
and if you were to tell them . . .
it would be a big surprise!

Without The Blood ~

 

Without Your blood,
Lord, we’d still be lost
without Your truth . . .
we’d still be dross.

Without Your grace,
we’d still be hopeless
without Your mercy . . .
we’d still be worthless.

Without Your atonement,
Lord, we’d still be doomed
without Your forgiveness . . .
we’d still by sin be consumed.

Without Your love,
we’d still be lifeless
without Your crucifixion
we’d still be helpless.

Lord, without Your blood,
we’d still be sinners
without Your sacrifice . . .
there’d be no crown winners!

~~~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 9:12

Neither by the blood of goats
and calves, but by his own blood

endureth temptation:
for when he is tried,
he shall receive the
crown of life, which
the Lord hath promised
to them that love him.

Psalm 16:11

 

 


The Spirit of Power ~

God has not given us,
a spirit of fear . . .
but, one of His power
to keep us to Him near.

No worry shall cause,
us to tremble or shake
not even the enemy
can author us to faint.

God has not given us,
a spirit of neglect . . .
but, one of His love
with regard and respect.

We shall speak the truth,
for in God we do trust
we care about others
because, He first loved us.

God has not given us,
a spirit of trepidation . . .
but, of a sound mind
not filled with irritation.

We are full of His peace,
there’s a calm deep inside
our tranquilly declares . . .
His Spirit is our guide.

God has given us a spirit,
not full of dread or fear . . .
but of power, love and peace
hope, gladness and good cheer!

His Light Bearers ~

Bible preachers, mercy teachers,
sharing with all the Good News

doing our best to fill His shoes.

Love producers, peace makers,
helping those who are in need
trust imparters, faith informers

Hope distributors, calm givers,
paving the way with His light
God seekers, Jesus searchers
living the good and faithful fight.

Sin stoppers, temptation busters,
leading others from the gate of hell
truth tellers, one day heaven dwellers

Light bearers, problem sharers,
coming together in healing prayer
Bible holders, His soldiers
confessing Jesus because we dare!

Do Not Despair ~

Do not despair,
do not be oppressed
I will comfort you
so be not distressed.

Do not worry,
do not be alarmed
I will not let anything
cause you to be harmed.

Do not doubt,
do not be disillusioned

I Want To Be That Eagle ~

I want to be that eagle,
that knows when to soar
who patiently waits . . .
for guidance from the Lord.

Then I would discover,
how to spread my wings
then I’d be able to conquer
all the storms life brings.

I want to have the wisdom,
to be able to discern . . .
how to fly over the clouds
not faint in my concern.

Then I’d have His strength,
to mount up and rise
trusting in His foresight
not what’s before me eyes.

I want to be that eagle,
who never gets weary
I want it to be the Lord . . .
who I can trust clearly!

~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 40:31

“But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew
their strength; they shall mount up with wings
as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary;

Laying My Treasures ~

My heart doesn’t lay,
it’s treasures on earth
for it knows one day
they’ll hold no worth.

Instead my heart places,
in God its daily trust
for I know His love for me
will never corrode or rust.

My heart doesn’t invest,
into worldly assets
for they are void of peace
riddled down with regrets.

Instead my heart’s devoted,
to the Life, Truth and Way
for I know my faith in Jesus
will not corrupt or decay.

My heart up in heaven,
lays all it holds dear . . .
for to put it here on earth
makes me shutter with fear!

~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 6:19-21

Lay not up for yourselves treasures
upon earth, where moth and rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves break
through and steal:

But lay up for
yourselves treasures in heaven,
where neither moth nor rust
doth corrupt, and where thieves
do not break through nor steal:

For where your treasure is,
there will your heart be also.

Love Released Me ~

Love released me,
from the mire
took my life
lifted me higher.

It picked me up,
when I was down
it stood me up
on firm ground.

Love pulled me,
out of the pit
took my heart
raised my spirit.

It hoisted me,
in faith and hope
It boosted me
in trust to cope.

Love removed,
my doubt and fear
Love came down . . .
to draw me near!

~~~~~~~

1 John 4:18

There is no fear in love;
but perfect love casteth out fear:
because fear hath torment.

The Gulf of Grief ~

In the depth of despair,
there is a gulf of grief . . .
where the sorrows of this life
leaves us begging for relief.

The hurting soul can’t calm,
or remove the heartbreak
it needs the healing touch
of the One who won’t forsake.

We thirst for healing waters,
for a peaceful resting place
where we can purge the pain
that’s too unbearable to face.

The grieving soul can’t let go,
nor cause the ache to part
only God can relieve . . .
the throbbing in its heart.

In the depth of despair,
there is a gulf of grief . . .
and only Jesus can bring
the heartbroken true relief!

If God ~

If for us God has plans,
if He knows our future
why don’t we believe
and trust Him sooner?

If He has for us good things,
if He provides our needs
why don’t we follow Him
regardless of where He leads?

If God gives us joy,
if He fills us with peace
why doesn’t our faith in Him
continue to increase?

If He provides our strength
if He equips us with power
why then does our hope
turn so often sour?

If we trust and believe,
God plans and not our own
to His guidance we’d be . . .
more spiritually prone!

~~~~~~~~

Jeremiah 29:11

“For I know the thoughts
that I think toward you,
saith the Lord, thoughts
of peace, and not of evil,
to give you an expected end.

with all joy and peace in believing,
that ye may abound in hope,

Restless ~

Restless hearts,
are everywhere
burdened down
by all their care.

Worry lines spread,
across their face
etched with the need
to find God’s grace.

Restless souls,
are all around
fear and dread
keeps them bound.

Furrowed brows,
show their vexation
oh, how they need
to find salvation.

Restless people,
restless minds . . .
oh, how they need
Jesus to find!

~~~~~

Isaiah 57:20-21

But the wicked are like
the troubled sea,
when it cannot rest,
whose waters cast up
mire and dirt.

There is no peace,

Faith Without Grace ~

Grace and faith,
a winning combination
for it is the key . . .
to eternal salvation.

You can’t have one,
with out the other
for faith without grace
your sins won’t cover.

Grace and faith,
are a reckoning source
when added together
they’re a powerful force.

For grace is the channel,
faith is the condition
without both of them
there is no redemption.

Grace and faith,
is the lone connection
and it comes from only . . .
one divine direction!

Ephesians 2:8

For by grace are ye saved
through faith; and that not

All Things Created ~

All things held together,
by God’s mighty hands
all things come together
according to His plans.

All things in heaven,
by God were fashioned
all things here on earth
He wisely sanctioned.

All things that are seen,
and all that which are not
were conceived by God
and the power of His thought.

The thrones and the rulers,
the mandates that be
were all formed and made
to give glory to Thee.

All things by God,
were created and established
so His plan for salvation . . .
could be accomplished!

~~~~~~~

Colossians 1:16-18

For by him were all things created,
that are in heaven,
and that are in earth,
visible and invisible,
whether they be thrones, or dominions,
or principalities, or powers:
all things were created by him,
and for him:

And he is before all things,
and by him all things consist.

And he is the head of the body,
the church: who is the beginning,
the firstborn from the dead;
that in all things he might have
the preeminence.

The Cloud of Past Sin ~

When the cloud of past sin,
darkens up your way . . .
remember God wiped out
misdeeds of yesterday.

He remembers never more,
the wicked things once done
now He only sees you through
the grace of His Son.

When the cloud of former sin,
moves across your path . . .
remember you no longer
will have to face God’s wrath.

He forgets all about,
your former wickedness
now He only sees you through
the eyes of righteousness.

When the cloud of ancient sin,
starts to descend down upon you
remember God has blotted out . . .
your past from His eternal view!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 44:22

I have blotted out,
as a thick cloud,
thy transgressions,
and, as a cloud, thy sins:
return unto me;
for I have redeemed thee.

Besides Stilling Waters ~

Besides stilling waters,
is where Jesus leads me
whenever from all the chaos
I long and need to be.

It is where my heart goes,
in the heat of the day
where with Him in my mind
I can linger and stay.

Besides stilling waters,
running throughout my soul
is where I ask Jesus
to regain in me control.

It is where my hopes flows,
whenever there is a drought
where with His peace I find
the abating of my doubt.

Besides stilling waters,
is where Jesus and I meet
it’s there that my fears . . .
I leave at His feet!

From Guilt to Shameless ~

Come unto Me,
rest is what I’ll give
when you ask of Me
your past to forgive.

Come let Me wash,
your sins away
from all those years
you went astray.

Come unto Me,
My burden is painless
with Me you’ll go . . .
from guilt to shameless.

Come let Me take,
your shame and disgrace
so I may free you
with My love and grace.

Come unto Me,
rest is what you’ll find
not just for your heart
but too for your mind!

Grace Is An Infusion ~

Grace is an infusion,
of God’s love and mercy
it is given freely . . .
to all who are thirsty.

It cannot be bought,
borrowed or purchased
only by Jesus . . .
to you is it furnished.

Grace is an transfusion,
of Christ’s saving blood
it cleanses our souls
as it flows and floods.

It is a connection,
to everything just
it quickens the heart
in it’s power to trust.

Grace is a transfusion,
of hope, love and peace
grace is an infusion . . .
only Jesus can release!

The Happy CHRISTian ~

The happy CHRISTian,
reads the Scriptures
the grace of Jesus
their mind pictures.

They find their pleasure,
not in worldly things
but in the peace and joy
His salvation brings.

They shun the world,
find in it no delight
the Word they meditate
both the day and night.

They are like a tree,
that is rooted well
for inside their soul
the Holy Spirit dwells.

The happy CHRISTian,
pursues the right way
that is why they read . . .
God’s Word every day!

Truly Loathsome~

All we humans,
are truly loathsome
we are all to God . . .
far from wholesome.

But, we who repent,
have been forgiven
and to evil we are . . .
no longer driven.

We are all wicked,
utterly revolting
we are all to God
wrath provoking.

But, we who confess,
our every transgression
are no longer filled
with sin’s obsession.

All we humans,
are detestable beings
but, we who love Jesus . . .
in heaven we’ll be seeing!

One Day Before God ~

One day before God,
I will stand spotless
in Christ, Jesus His Son
I will be found flawless.

My sins will be as white,
as freshly fallen snow
the blemish of my shame
will take on a pearly glow.

One day before God,
I will bow and confess
as my allegiance
to Jesus I profess.

My love and devotion,
for eternity I’ll sing
to the Lord of lords
and the King of all kings.

One day before God,
I will stand faultless . . .
for the Lamb of God
has rendered me spotless!

~~~~~~~~~~

Philippians 2:9-11

Wherefore God also hath highly
exalted him, and given him a
name which is above every name:

and things under the earth;

And that every tongue
should confess that
Jesus Christ is Lord,

keep Your grace flowing
so my hope will never cease.

Lord, give me the wholeness,
found in only You . . .
give me the righteousness
to be the life of You.

Reveal to me the liberty,
found in Your redemption
give me the final victory
of eternal salvation.

Lord, give me the fullness,
found in only You . . .
give me the stillness
of the blessedness of You!

Help me to mature,

more of the grace

May my joy expand,
as my hope is proved
until our hearts
are eternally fused.

Oh, my Father,
hearer of my prayer
may for You I only have
good fruit to bear!

We All Get Stuck ~

We all start to sink,
from time to time
we all get stuck
in the murky grime.

But we can rise,
for we know
the way out
God will show.

We all waver,
ever now and then
we all need saving
again and again.

But we know,
Jesus will recuse us
therefore we put
in Him our trust.

We all sink into,
some kind of despair
but, our faith . . .
it will not impair!

God’s Most Perfect Love ~

God’s most perfect love,
there is nothing better
to help us with our ties . . .
to the world to sever.

It takes our worst fears,
casts them away
fills us with confidence
for judgment day.

God’s most perfect love,
brings eternal elation
gives us the faultless joy
of everlasting salvation.

For without it we’d be,
bound straight for hell
where for all eternity
our souls would dwell.

God’s perfect love,
took away our punishment
renders us before Him . . .
blameless and innocent!

Aside From Jesus ~

Aside from Jesus,
I’m totally worthless
without Him all I do
is utterly pointless.

The more I grow in Him,
I see my nothingness
the more I know about Him
I see my hopelessness.

Aside from Jesus,
my life is fruitless
without His Spirit
I’m more than useless.

The more He grows in me,
I see my own weakness
the more He means to me
I see my helplessness.

Aside from Jesus,
I’m totally bankrupt
without His grace . . .
I completely corrupt!

2 Peter 3:18

But grow in grace, and in the

When I Consider All God Made ~

Father, when I consider,
all Your fingers have made
how the sun slowly rises
as the moon begins to fade.

I’m in awe,
of the magnificence I see
in this amazing universe
You have set before me.

Father, when I consider,
the trillion stars in the sky
hanging on the dark backdrop
You placed so ever high.

I’m in awe,
of the works of Your hand
up above in the heavens
from down here where I stand.

Father, when I consider,
the stars, moon and the sun
I know beyond them . . .
is Your Kingdom yet to come.

I’m in awe,
of the splendor of my view
starlit glimpses of eternity
where I’ll be home with You!

“When I consider thy heavens
the work of thy fingers

I’m So Glad I Found Jesus ~

Through life’s many trials,
and all its tribulations
I’m so glad I found . . .
the Life of salvation.

For my life was a battle,
I could never win
without Jesus telling me
go no more and sin.

Through life’s journey,
and all its ups and downs
I’m so glad I found . . .
the Way to get around.

For the road I was on,
was full of so much strife
until Jesus showed me
the Truth to eternal life.

Through life’s many trials,
constant failures and tests . . .
I’m so thankful the Light
lead me to find God’s rest!

~~~~~~

John 8:11

She said, No man, Lord.
And Jesus said unto her,
Neither do I condemn thee:
go, and sin no more.

John 14:6

Jesus saith unto him,
I am the way, the truth,
and the life: no man cometh
unto the Father, but by me.

Worry Ends ~

Worry ends,
when faith kicks in
it withdraws
to our trust within.

For when in God,
peace we find
worry can’t play
with our mind.

Fear ceases,
where love exists
doubt dissolves
where hope persists.

For when in Jesus,
our faith we place
our fears will flee
in the sight of grace.

Worry and fear,
are forced out
when to the Lord
we give our doubt!

~~~~~~

Psalm 34:4

I sought the Lord,
and he heard me,
and delivered me
from all my fears.

May Your Eyes Be Opened ~

May your eyes be opened,
to spiritual understanding
may the hope you now have
keep your faith expanding.

May you be enlightened,
to the truth you’ve found
may your heart be guarded
and your mind stay sound.

May your eyes discover,
God’s beauty and wonder
may upon His goodness
they contemplate and ponder.

May His spirit you trust,
as your guide and shield
may to His instructions
you diligently yield.

May the riches of His glory,
be your soul’s delight
may your future inheritance
always be in your sight!

~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 1:18

The eyes of your understanding
being enlightened; that ye may
know what is the hope of his calling,

Abba Our Father ~

Abba my Father,
has adopted me
into His family
so I could be . . .

An heir to salvation,
a daughter of light
a child that brings
to Him great delight.

No longer an orphan,
no longer a stray
I’ve inherited a room
in His mansion I’ll stay.

Abba my Father,
has adopted me
into His family
so I can be free . . .

Free from the guilt,
of my wandering ways
free from the darkness
that once filled my days.

The adoption became final,
that day on the Cross
when Jesus died for me
and all those who are lost.

Abba my Father,
has adopted me
into His family
so I might see . . .

See His glory,
in the midst of my pain
see His grace fall
like sweet drops of rain.

The inheritance is mine,
I’m claiming my right
and now I have privilege
to His power and might.

Abba my Father,
has adopted me
into His family,
I willingly flee . . .

~~~~~

Your Love Lord ~

Lord Your love brings,
my heart tranquil peace
I can feel Your calm
providing me release.

It warms my soul,
my mind it refreshes
all of my concerns
it patiently addresses.

Lord, Your love constantly,
comforts and consoles
my fears and doubts
it curtails and controls.

It generates in me,
a humble restfulness
every time I think  . . .
of Your lowly gentleness.

Lord, Your love brings,

just knowing inside of it
is where You dwell!

how are we going to win
this good and faithful fight?

How will we show the Way,
to the Life everlasting
how will we act when others
stones at us our casting?

How are we going to live,

how will we break through
the chains of the devil?

Another year is upon us,

Lord, how can we bring hope
if we don’t have any too!

Our Heart’s Desires ~

If we want to have,
our heart’s desires
we need to do . . .
all God requires.

For He wants us to be,
to Him fully submitted
to the Truth and Way
wholly committed.

If we want to have,
the wants of our heart
from righteousness
we must not depart.

For God wants us to be,
drawn to the Light
so the world can see
in Him our delight.

Our heart desires,
God will bring to us . . .
if in Him we commit
delight and trust!

~~~~~~~

Psalm 37:4-6

Delight thyself also in the Lord:
and he shall give thee the desires
of thine heart.

Commit thy way unto the Lord;
trust also in him; and he shall
bring it to pass.

And he shall bring forth thy
righteousness as the light,
and thy judgment as the noonday.

Looking Unto Jesus ~

As troubles come,
as they most surely will
when the road ahead of you
looks all up hill.

When you are at a loss,
as to what to do
and you’ve no answers
not even a clue.

Look unto Jesus,
He knows how high the climb
He’ll help you over it
in His perfect time.

As hardships come,
as they seem to do
when they start to get
the very best of you.

When the pit you’re in,
is beyond waist deep
and all your cares
make you want to weep.

Look unto Jesus,
He will never let you sink
He is not as far away
as you may think.

As burdens come,
as they begin to occur
and in your mind
everything’s a big blur.

When nothing seems,
to make much sense
and you start to feel
nervous and tense.

Look unto Jesus,
He’ll give to you a new sight
and you’ll start to see . . .
everything through His light!

~~~~~~~~

Hebrews 12:2

Looking unto Jesus
the author and finisher of our faith;
who for the joy that was set before
him endured the cross, despising the
shame, and is set down at the right
hand of the throne of God.

Sticky Note From God ~12.29.19~


Worthy ~

Sometimes we don’t feel,
we are worthy of . . .
God’s mercy and favor
let alone His gift of love.

But, that is just a lie,
satan likes to tell . . .
for he wants to drag us
straight with him into hell.

Sometimes we don’t feel,
we are deserving of . . .
Jesus’ saving grace
let alone His undying love.

But, that is just the devil,
trying to get into us . . .
for, he is out to destroy
in God our faith and trust.

Sometimes satan will,
unsettle us with worry
but, we must believe . . .
to God we are worthy!

~~~~~~~

1 Corinthians 6:11

And such were some of you:
but ye are washed, but ye
are sanctified, but ye are
justified in the name of
the Lord Jesus, and by the
Spirit of our God.

2 Corinthians 11:3

But I fear, lest by any means,
as the serpent beguiled Eve
through his subtilty,
so your minds should be
corrupted from the
simplicity that is in Christ.

Knowing How To Wait ~

Knowing how to wait,
on God is a must . . .
for it’s when we learn
how in Him to trust.

We need to remain calm,
instead of losing it
we need to be quiet
both in heart and spirit.

Knowing how to be still,
is a requirement
for it’s when we become
on God more reliant.

We need to stay cool,
not lose our composure
we need to slow down
so fear doesn’t takeover.

Waiting on the Lord,
is the best way to cope
for it is the only way
to find peace and hope!

Psalm 130:5

I wait for the Lord,
my soul doth wait,
and in his word do I hope.

The Ocean’s Shore ~

As I stroll along,
the ocean’s shore
I feel blessed
to my very core.

Though I don’t know,
the water’s depth
I’m sure the Lord guides
my every step.

As I listen to,
the waves that roar
I trust God’s Spirit
over storms to soar.

Just as the soft sand,
and sea must meet
I know God’s the strength
beneath my feet.

And unlike a pebble,
in the warm sand
my faith can’t be crushed
by the foot of man.

As I watch the eagles,
land on the dock
I too find safety
in the Lord my Rock!

Joy Entered The World ~

Joy entered the world,
Truth found its way in
Grace penetrated through
all barrier’s of sin.

Love came down from heaven,
a Father’s Gift revealed
Light infiltrated into hearts
by His stripes they’re now healed.

The Way emergencies,
Jesse’s Branch shoots forth
a Savior materializes
out of a Virgin’s birth.

Peace broke though,
Flesh took on form
God’s Mercy establishes
Salvation’s only platform.

Hope descended,
God’s Favor comes to Rest
Eternal Life in His Son
finally manifests.

Joy entered the world,
a Messiah to all is born
tis why we celebrate  . . .
on this CHRISTmas morn!

~~~~~~~

John 1:14

And the Word was made flesh,
and dwelt among us, (and we

as of the only begotten
of the Father,)

Tis The Night Before ~

Tis the night before,
a virgin’s birth
of a Savior born
right here on earth.

Beloved and begotten,
God’s only Son . . .
brings hope and salvation
for each and everyone.

Tis the night before,
a glorious new day
when the Life and Truth
came to show the Way.

A Gift straight from God,
full of love and grace
a Messiah, a King
for all the human race.

Tis the night before,
the birth of our Savior
God’s ultimate proof . . .
of His mercy and favor!

~~~~~~~~~~

Luke 2:6-7

And so it was, that,
while they were there,
the days were accomplished
that she should be delivered.

And she brought forth her firstborn son,
and wrapped him in swaddling clothes,
and laid him in a manger; because there
was no room for them in the inn.
