Christmas Morning

Joy to the World, The Lord Has Come!

For unto us a Child is born, Unto us a Son is given;
And the government will be upon His shoulder.
And His name will be called Wonderful, Counselor,
Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6
Let the Twelve Days of Christmas Begin!

On the first day of Christmas my true love gave to me,
a partridge in a pear tree.

My God loves me like no other. Like no other can.
He is my one true love, my only true love.
And because He loves me so,
He gave me what no one else could.
He gave me His Son,
to come to earth as a man,
to take my sin upon himself,
to die an innocent man on the cross,
to pay the price for me,
that I may live as he lives.
He gave me life, life in Christ.
He gave me His Son from the beginning of Creation.

For that I rejoice, I dance, I feast, I love deeply.
