The season has arrived
And on its meaning we reflect;
The special time in history
We ought to not forget.
It’s the birth of our Lord
When God’s Son came to earth,
And where the wise men they worshipped Him
With gold, frankincense and myrrh.
The Lord had a special mission
To reconcile us to the Father,
Through His death and resurrection;
Through only Him and through no other.
He was crucified and beaten
And He was nailed to the cross,
Like a lamb led to the slaughter;
He paid the ultimate of costs.
But His obedience saw victory
And it was His sacrificial love,
That paid the price for our liberty
As we’re reconciled above.
Those who receive Him
Will be washed and cleansed within,
Through repentance and humility
And delivered from all sin.
The birth of our Lord
Was the greatest of all gifts,
Because the rewards are eternal
Where the soul forever lives.
It’s a profound time in history;
A moment that cannot be compared,
When the heartbeat of the Father
Showed His tender love and care.
We thank God for Jesus Christ
And His sacrifice here on earth;
The most poignant but most victorious
Heralding our precious spiritual birth.
