To Us A Child of Hope is Born

History regularly repeats the story of humanity when the world becomes very wicked and then miraculously God sends a baby to save the world. God did this when he sent Seth and Noah and Abraham and Moses and Joshua and David and Isaiah and Jeremiah and Nehemiah and John the Baptist. His greatest gift is Jesus Christ, born in Bethlehem in a manger. This simple, beautiful, powerful truth echoes through the years.

One song which celebrates this truth is: To Us A Child of Hope is Born. Here are the words:

To us a Child of hope is born,
To us a Son is given;
Him shall the tribes of earth obey,
Him, all the hosts of heaven.

His name shall be the Prince of Peace,
Forevermore adored,
The Wonderful, the Counselor,
The great and mighty Lord.

His power, increasing, still shall spread,
His reign no end shall know;
Justice shall guard his throne above,
And peace abound below.

Dwell often on these words. Let them be a blessing and support in your heart. Ponder on these thoughts often.

Share YOUR dreams and future with others. Let me hear from YOU.
