Laura's Favourites...

I've taken the liberty of "stealing" the following post from Laura's blog entitled A Perfecting Love. I'm sure she won't mind. Good stuff! - David

I've posted them before, but here are my favourite stanzas from familiar carols. - Laura

The hopes and fears of all the years are met in Thee tonight

Holy Infant so tender and mild

Twas a humble birthplace, but oh how much, God gave to us that day, From the manger bed, what a path was led, what a perfect, holy way

Then pauled the bells more loud and deep
God is not dead, nor doth He sleep
The wrong shall fail, the right prevail
With peace on earth, good will to men

Truly He taught us to love one another,
His law is love and His gospel is place
Chains shall He break, for the slave is our brother
And in His name all oppression shall cease!

The King of kings lay thus in lowly manger,
In all our trials, born to be our friend,
He knows our need - to our weakness no stranger!

Word of the Father, now in flesh appearing

A warm & blessed Christmas to each one of you.♥
