Then Let It Begin...

…then let it begin not in the din
Of feeble Happy Holiday
But with the love of God above
He gave Jesus on Christmas Day

…then let it begin with Love’s First Gift
Not tinsel-strewn or paper-shod
But in a humble cattle-stall
Came Jesus Christ the Son of God

…then let it begin with awe of Him
Creator of sky, sea and sod
Came down to earth in lowly birth
A peasant’s Babe, the Son of God

…then let it begin with Hope and Peace
And not the fretting, getting-race
But with this joy of Baby Boy
That came to save us by God’s grace

Have this attitude in yourselves which was also in Christ Jesus, who, although He existed in the form of God, did not regard equality with God a thing to be grasped, but emptied Himself, taking the form of a bond-servant, and being made in the likeness of men.…Phil. 2:5-7
