The God of Ages Reigns...Merry Christmas





The Word became flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the one and only Son, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:14

The God of ages reigns
Though fear may bid us doubt
Mankind admits again, again
What nature-legions shout

All living things must die
This is the way of dust
The God of ages does not lie
Therefore in Him we trust

He placed within man’s flesh
An ageless soul; aha
No mind can outwit Heaven’s best
Nor thwart love’s sacred law

...and love alone will prove
The God of ages reigns 
No dark is too deep to be moved
Nor guilt greater than grace
 
The God of ages reigns
What Bethlehem first heard
Though centuries have passed remains
Unchanged; His living Word

Have you become familiar with Him?

May we never lose love's wonder
but like shepherds, ah may we
bow in worship at the manger
of hope in humility!

For no pen can fully tell it
and no page can fully hold
what the heart is fully feeling
as love's wonder breaks thought's mold

Let us ponder 
the wonder
and worship
 the Savior
 as we celebrate His coming to earth, today!

J~  Merry Christmas!
