What a Night By Brenda Drake

I have great wonder and respect for the Christmas story.  Being a woman, I wonder at the fact Mary’s great honor and responsibility to give birth and to raise the Son of God.  Like the song we love to sing, we wonder, Mary did you know this baby would become your personal Savior?  Did you know He made the earth you were teaching Him to walk on?  What a wonderful story, what a wonderful love story!

What a Night 

What a night; like no other,
The holy child in the arms of His mother.
God was wrapped up tight,
As the stars He made shined bright.
The heavens watched and angels burst into song.
The frail, tiny baby would right what was wrong.
Within Mary’s heart the promised truth lay;
She gazed into the eyes of God on that day.
Holy, pure majesty placed in her care,
To one day His life-purpose to with the world share.
Holy and precious baby to a virgin born,
Her great joy would one day from her heart be torn.
On another night like no other before,
Her Son became her Savior and Lord.
We too can know and the truth believe,
Because He is Truth and Life new birth we receive.
He lived to die so we are set free,
To rise up as He did to victory.
As we give gifts and celebrate Jesus’ birth,
Keep in mind He is the Father’s gift sent to earth.

Matthew 2:1-2
Now when Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judaea in the days of Herod the king, behold, there came wise men from the east to Jerusalem, Saying, Where is he that is born King of the Jews? for we have seen his star in the east, and are come to worship him.
