A Gift From Heaven

Gerard_van_Honthorst_-_Adoration_of_the_Shepherds_(1622)

A tear falls down my cheek
At the thought of Jesus small and meek
Held in Mary’s loving arms
Joseph close, standing guard

Let there be Light, God’s living Word
Born in a stable, changed the world
Such sacrifice hard to believe
A Gift from Heaven we can receive

Yes, Christmas is all about HIM
Who came from the Father to take our sin
Not a tiny babe anymore
He’s King of Kings and Lord of Lords

Joy is His Game

Treeinlightandgloom

Been feeling down for days
Self pity thick and black
Sadness creeping by says
All you’ll ever have is lack

But in me dwells a Champion
Jesus is His name
I’m asking a second opinion
Found that JOY is His game

No matter life’s circumstance
There’s Hope found in Christ
Who I am is not happenstance
My future is strong and Bright!

Resurrection!

Empty Tomb

Entombed
All seems doomed
Weeping; fright
Everything night

Sunrise Breathtaking
Suddenly earth shaking
Golden array
Stone rolls away

Darkness shattered
Evil scattered
One Man
Steps out of death

Heaven applauds
New life dawns
Eternal bliss
Now ours; His gift!

Come to the well of Healing

kneeling_in_prayer

World filled with fear and strife
Many Christians are speaking doom
But, my eyes are fixed on Jesus
And His joy makes my heart bloom

I’m accused of being a Pollyanna
My head, they say, is in the sand
But,they’re not seeing the greatness of God
They’re looking to man’s ways instead

God said not to look at this world
His love says evil won’t win
Great hope is found in His heart
When we walk in the Spirit with Him

His Promise is life abundant
“Peace I give you…” He has spoken
Religious folks have forgotten
Every yoke of oppression is broken.

Come to the well of healing
His name is Jesus Christ
No church rules or dogma needed
Draw from His sacrifice

Freedom and assurance are yours
As part of Jesus’ team
There’s no promise He will withhold
As upon Him you fully lean!

Christ Born in our Lives

Nativity-Scene

Such delight
The thought of Him
That Holy night
Love’s glorious sight

His Star shone bright
Victory already won
Darkness became Light
He’s God’s own Son

Two thousands years hence
His light still shines
It can never be quenched
Christ born in our lives

Love one another
As He has loved you
We are sister and brother
Joined in Him and each other

Christmas Blessings,
Rev. Cheryl Birch
