The Christ of Christmas

The Christ of Christmas

Luke 2: 8-14

Mary Elizabeth Elliott

No jingle bells, but stable smells Filled the cold night air Animals shifting noisily While beholding a jewel rare.

The baby's mother looked at them And gave a weary smile Tired and worn from her ordeal Having traveled many a mile.

But all was worth it, he was here As Joseph looked in awe Exhausted and challenged emotionally By the baby that he saw.

For though all babies are beautiful There was an ethereal glow Surrounding the precious bundle The Savior the world would know.

The shepherds, they already knew The angels came to earth Announcing good news for everyone The event of the holy birth.

For unto YOU is born this day A Savior, Christ the Lord In the city of David lies the Prince of Peace The fulfillment of God's Word.

Silent night, reverent sight A King has come to earth Son of God, Emmanuel The pearl of greatest worth.

No jingle bells decked the stable's halls No carols that quiet night Just a star in the sky bringing wise men there A blessed guiding light.

From cradle to cross He carried Himself Giving all for you and for me A humble and lowly beginning And a death that would set us free.

The Christ of Christmas is powerful The One sent so that we can see That God loves us so much He gave us this Son Ours for Eternity.

So this is the Christmas of challenge This is the Christmas of choice Is Christ in your Christmas or pageantry It is time to follow His voice.

The Christ of Christmas is known to you He makes the way perfectly clear He's God of creation, glorified Every day of the year.

Choose Christ in the manger and Christ on the cross And you'll be forever free Put Christ in your Christmas and God in your life And worship the Trinity.

Your worship will grow as you walk with Him All the way to His cross Is the Christ of your Christmas the Lord of your life He paid with His love, without counting the cost.

And there were shepherds residing in the fields nearby, keeping watch over their flocks by night.Just then, an angel of the Lord stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were terrified. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid! For behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people: Today in the City of David a Savior has been born to you. He is Christ the Lord! And this will be a sign to you: You will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.”

And suddenly there appeared with the angel a great multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying:

“Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace to men on whom His favor rests!”
