The Christmas season is upon us, with the various activities and sentiments it brings to different people. I am amazed that, in spite of how commercialized the holidays have become (Christmas decor hit the store shelves after the back to school sales here), the world to some degree turns its attention to the One who made the ultimate sacrifice for us. When else is it acceptable to listen to words such as these?
- Hail the heav’n-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings
Ris’n with healing in His wings
Mild He lays His glory by
Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give them second birth
Hark! The herald angels sing
“Glory to the newborn King!”
Have a wonderful Christmas in our Glorious King!
