Christmas Hope

In this cold world, peace was a stranger
When God sent His Son to be born in a manger.
Angels rejoiced as they welcomed His birth,
Shouted, "Glory to God, and to men, peace on earth."

The "Light of the World" He was destined to be,
As He broke sin's bonds to set captives free.
He bore our infirmities, carried our sorrow,
Filled us with joy and a promise of tomorrow.

How could we question God's boundless love,
Who gave us His precious gift from above?
His light scatters darkness to show us the way,
So we might see clearly that He is our stay.

As you enter this season, remember Christ's birth.
For God sent His Son to a desolate earth.
Keep Him alive in your celebrations,
Jesus is our only hope for the nations.
