Why We Celebrate His Birth
And there were in the same country shepherds abiding
in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and
the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they
were much afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not:
for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which
shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the
city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. Luke 2:8-11
A young virgin girl had a baby boy,
Though she had never been with a man,
She gave birth to the only Son of God,
Who was God's redemption plan.
A baby born in a lowly stable,
A feeding trough was His first bed,
When an angel appeared from heaven,
And with great rejoicing, he said:
“I bring you tidings of great joy,
To all people comes this holy word,
For unto you is born this day
A Savior, who is Christ the Lord.”
His name was Jesus, “Jehovah saves”,
Emmanuel, meaning “God with us”
He was the Christ, the Messiah,
The “Anointed One”, that's who He was.
God knew we could never come to Him,
Because we're lost, in the darkness of sin,
So He came to us, in the form of a baby,
To save us, and bring us up to Him.
Now at Christmas-time, we celebrate,
That precious baby born from above:
Jesus Christ brings the gift of salvation,
And shows us the depths of God's love.
