THE HAPPY CHRISTMAS COMES ONCE MORE
The happy Christmas comes once more,
The heavenly Guest is at the door,
The blessèd words the shepherds thrill,
The joyous tidings, “Peace, good will.”
This world, though wide and far outspread,
Could scarcely find for You a bed.
Your cradle was a manger stall,
No pearl nor silk nor kingly hall.
O let us go with quiet mind,
The gentle Babe with shepherds find,
To gaze on Him Who gladdens them,
The loveliest flower of Jesse’s stem.
The lowly Savior meekly lies,
Laid off the splendor of the skies;
No crown bedecks His forehead fair,
No pearl, nor gem, nor silk is there.
O wake, our hearts, in gladness sing,
And keep our Christmas with our King,
Till living song, from loving souls,
Like sound of mighty water rolls.
O holy Child, Thy manger gleams
Till earth and heaven glow with its beams,
Till midnight noon’s broad light hath won,
And Jacob’s star outshines the sun.
Thou patriarchs’ joy, Thou prophets’ song,
Thou heavenly Dayspring, looked for long,
Thou Son of Man, incarnate Word,
Great David’s Son, great David’s Lord.
Come, Jesus, glorious heavenly Guest,
Keep Thine own Christmas in our breast,
Then David’s harp strings, hushed so long,
Shall swell our jubilee of song.
~~ Words by Nikolai F. Grundtvig, 1810 ~~
At this time of the year, it is so easy to miss the true meaning
of Christmas. The world is shopping for presents. Folks are
rushing to and fro. Decorations seem to be the priority but
how many truly realize the true meaning of this season.
Our Lord came as a baby -- the Lord of Glory, wrapped
in swaddling clothes! He came for one purpose and
that was to redeem mankind from their sins.
Christ Jesus is the true meaning of every season in the heart of
the Christian. We remember His humble birth but we look to
the Risen Christ in glory! -- The One who lived the holy life we
could never live and died the cruelest death, bearing our sins
upon Himself! He was born in a manger because He is the Lamb
of God! He shed His precious blood for us. He arose from the
grave, proving He is the Son of God-- and is now seated at the
right hand of the Heavenly Father, awaiting the day when He shall
return for His own. We look to Him - Our Great High Priest--
Christ Jesus shall forever reign! His kingdom IS FOREVER.
The manger was just the beginning of the glorious
eternal Kingdom that shall never end!
He shall be great, and shall be called the Son of the Highest: and
the Lord God shall give unto him the throne of his father David:
And he shall reign over the house of Jacob for ever; and of
his kingdom there shall be no end.
