For today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord.
A Carol By Amy Carmichael
There are two Bethlehems in the land,two little Bethlehems there.
O,Wisemen do you understand ?, To seek Him everywhere .
The heavenly child lies holily, the heavenly child lies lowlily,
No crown on his soft hair .
There are three crosses on the hill, three dreadful crosses there ,
And very dark and very chill, The heavy shuddering air.
Is there a sign to show my Lord, The sinner's savior, Heaven's Adored?
'Tis he with thorn- crowned hair .
For in his lovely baby days heaven's door was set ajar .
And angels flew through glimmering ways and lit a silver star.
No need for halo or for crown to show the King of Love come down
to dwell where sinners are.
But when He died upon the Rood,The King of Glory, He ,
There was no star, there was no good,nor any majesty.
For diadem was only scorn,a twisting torturing crown of thorn.
And it was all for me.
Christmas is a Holy day we celebrate . A day we celebrate because God became man and started on a journey which began in a stable ,goes to the cross and ends with him as our Risen Savior in Heaven .And it was all for us , to redeem us back to himself . He loved us so much he died for us ,to take the punishment for our sins.There has never been a Greater Love than this !
Love did come down at Christmas!
Happy Holy Day !
