Merry Christmas

December 24, 2007 Categories: Holidays | 1 Comment  

My nephew, Peter, has a fever! I know it’s horrible to be happy about that, but my sister said we all might as well be sick together, so we will be going down to Mom and Dad’s tomorow afternoon for Christmas dinner. The whole family – sickies included. And I am glad.

I hope your prayers are answered at this Christmas, too – big ones and little ones. (No, I didn’t pray that Peter would get sick, but I did pray that we could all be together.)

I leave you with the lyrics to the song I sang at the Christmas Eve service this evening.

Precious Promise
Words and music by Steven Curtis Chapman

Oh, what a Precious Promise,
Oh, what a gift of love,
An angel tells a virgin that she’s gonna have a son.
And though it’s a Precious Promise,
She wonders how can this be?
What will the people say and what if Joseph can’t believe?
And her questions and her fears
Are met with an overwhelming joy that God has chosen her.
Oh, what a Precious Promise:
Mary waits as Heaven comes to earth.

Oh, what a Precious Promise,
Oh, what a gift of love,
Joseph makes his choice to do what few men would have done:
To take Mary as his bride, when she’s already carrying a child
That isn’t his own.
Oh, what a Precious Promise,
Mary and the child will have a home.

And shepherds stand on a hillside;
Their hearts are racing with the news the angel told them.
A star’s light fills up the dark sky,
As the night of Precious Promise is unfolding.

Oh, what a Precious Promise,
Oh, what a gift of love,
The waiting now is over and the time has finally come
For the God Who made this world
To roll back the curtain and unveil
His passion for the heart of man.
Oh, what a Precious Promise,
Lying in a manger in Bethlehem.
Oh, what a Precious Promise,
Lying in a manger in Bethlehem.
