Lesson 29: Welcome Holy Child

I am a good writer, but sometimes I cannot find the right words to express the message I want to convey, so I borrow someone else's.  This Christmas Day post is the song Welcome to Our World by Chris Rice.  I am uncertain to whom to give credit for the lyrics, but they are in a simple word, beautiful.  I hi-lighted in red and green my favorite lyrics from the song.  When coupled with the moving images, they touch your heart in deep places where no one else but the Holy Spirit can reach. 

Unto us a child was born over two thousand years ago.  Welcome holy child.  Eloise

Tears are falling, hearts are breaking
How we need to hear from God

You've been promised, we've been waiting
Welcome Holy Child

Hope that you don't mind our manger
How I wish we would have known
But long-awaited Holy Stranger
Make Yourself at home
Please make Yourself at home

Bring Your peace into our violence
Bid our hungry souls be filled
Word now breaking Heaven's silence

Welcome to our world

Fragile finger sent to heal us
Tender brow prepared for thorn
Tiny heart whose blood will save us
Unto us is born

So wrap our injured flesh around You
Breathe our air and walk our sod
Rob our sin and make us holy
Welcome to our world

Just caught up on my blog reading. Things have been quite hectic so blog and e-mail reading were neglected. Found your Christmas writing very inspirational and laughed at the "potty training" update. Little boys just don't go along with the program! I'm waiting to hear if you got your Lost DVD for Christmas! Enjoy the rest of the holidays!
