1 Day Left - A Baby was Born
And the baby was born in a stable
because there was no room for him in the inn.
In the silence of that Holy Night, Mary gave birth
and wrapped the child in swaddling cloths
and placed him in a manger.
And in that same country
There were shepherds watching over their flocks
and an Angel of the Lord came to them and said
"Behold, I bring you tidings of great joy.
A savior is born in Bethlehem"
And the shepherds came and found the baby in the manger
just as the Angel had said
And in Persia to the east of Bethlehem there were Magi
Astrologers who saw
a star in Juda and told each other,
"We must go and worship this king, which the star fortells"
And they traveled to Bethlehem and found the baby.
And they brought gifts with them and gave them to the baby
Gold - the gift a King would give to a King.
Frankincense - the Holy fragrance associated with God
Myrrh - a soothing balm of healing
Oh what a Wonderful and Holy Happening
We celebrate on this silent night.
