There…in warm candlelight,
In carols folded in worship and peace,
In laughter and ribbons and paper ripping joy —
reminders, all, of our Savior Gift wrapped in swaddling clothes for us all…
Merry Christmas! Have a merry, merry, merry Christmas!
Foretold, centuries before He came…
“Therefore the Lord himself will give you a sign:
The virgin will conceive and give birth to a son,
and will call him Immanuel.”
~ Isaiah 7:14
For to us a child is born,
to us a son is given,
and the government will be on his shoulders.
And he will be called
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
Of the greatness of his government and peace
there will be no end.
Isaiah 9: 6,7
