Still under construction. graphics by ICT

I can do all things through him who strengthens me.
--Philippians 4:13
For God so loved the world that he gave his only son, so that everyone who believes in him may not perish but may have life everlasting.
--John 3:14
Humble yourselves under the mighty hand of the Lord and he will lift you up. Cast all your cares on him because he cares for you.
--1 Peter 5:6-7
Then I heard the voice of the Lord saying "Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?" And I said, "Here I am. Send me."
--Isaiah 6:8

As Mary rocks her baby boy
Sheís filled with sadness, filled with joy
She looks upon that tiny face
And sees the hope of every race.

Her heart is filled with a motherís glow
And she never wants to let him go.
Sheíll see him run and laugh and play
And longs to keep him safe each day.

His life wonít be an easy one,
His destiny hard, as Godís own son.

Mary sees the miracles heíll perform,
The lepers healed and free from scorn.
The lame will walk, the blind will see.
She sees his love will set us free.

And then she sees him on a cross.
She feels his pain and feels our loss.
She knows his life must come to this.
She sheds a tear and gives a kiss.

His life wonít be an easy one,
His destiny hard, as Godís own son.

So as Christmastime draws near
And we are all so busy here,
With shopping, baking, trees of green
Letís ask, what does this really mean?

Letís take a moment from the fuss,
And think of all their gifts to us:
A motherís love, a baby boy,
Peace and comfort, love and joy.

For he was born for everyone,
His destiny, Godís only son.
