Grace Notes - Dec. 29, 2019
Excerpts from Candlelight Carol, by John Rutter
How do you capture the wind on the water? How do you count all the stars in the sky? How can you measure the love of a mother? Or how can you write down a baby's first cry?
Shepherds and wise men will kneel and adore him Seraphim round him their vigil will keep Nations proclaim him their Lord and their Savior But Mary will hold him and sing him to sleep
Find him at Bethlehem laid in a manger Christ our Redeemer asleep in the hay Godhead incarnate and hope of salvation A child with his mother that first Christmas Day
Candlelight, angel light, firelight and star-glow Shine on his cradle till breaking of dawn Gloria! Gloria in excelsis deo Angels are singing; the Christ child is born
Blessings on the journey,
"Seize the day! Embrace the present! Plan for the future! At all times, remain in God's presence, seek to follow Christ, and yearn for the direction of the Holy Spirit who will guide your steps all along the way."
