Merry Christmas Everyone!

In the bleak midwinter,
frost wind made moan,
earth stood hard as iron,
water like a stone;
snow had fallen,
snow on snow,
snow on snow,
in the bleak midwinter
long ago.

Our God, heaven cannot hold him nor earth sustain;
heaven and earth shall flee away when he comes to reign.
in the bleak midwinter a stable place sufficed the Lord God Almighty,
Jesus Christ.

Angels and archangels may have gathered there,
cherubim and seraphim thronged the air;
but his mother only, in her maiden bliss,
worshiped the beloved with a kiss.

What can I give him, poor as I am?

If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb;

if I were a Wise Man, I would do my part;

yet what I can I give him: give my heart.

Merry Christmas. My prayer is that we will all give Jesus Christ our hearts everyday. Blessings on your holidays.
