- Mary’s SongMy soul doth magnify
And glory in the Lord
His lowly handmaiden
He has chosen over all
My spirit doth rejoice
Over God my saviour,
For He has truly blessed me
And shown great favour…
Blessed and exalted
Is the fruit of her womb
The promise from ages past
Was coming very soon
I wonder if Mary,
The servant of the Lord,
Understood with depth
The magnitude of her call
The son she brought forth
Called Holy and righteous,
Blessed Prince of Peace,
Forever there to guide us
Did she know that Jesus
Is the name above all names?
That no one else can save us
And take away our shame
Did Mary know His future
And who He really was?
Did she know the price He’d pay
Upon the blood-stained cross?
Oh a mother’s heart must ache
To see her first born son
Hanging from a wooden cross,
Rejected by everyone
Did she know that He would rise
And walk among them again?
To eat and drink and share with them
Until He would ascend
He left with us His Holy Spirit,
Forever to dwell inside
I wonder if Mary ever knew
The significance of His life.

- A Christmas Charity ChoiceAnn was no stranger to wealth.
She even owned a Rolls-Royce.
Every Christmas, Ann had to make
The Christmas charity choice.
Ann discussed it with Sam, her hubby
A month before Christmas was here.
“Sam, I really want to do something
Unusual for our charity this year.”
“Exactly what do you mean?” he asked.
“Choose some worthy cause,” my Dear.
“Sam, I prayed and made a decision
To help some homeless ones this year.”
“I will act like a homeless person
And hang out with them somewhere,
And maybe I’ll find special needs
Among some homeless people there.”
Sam began to grin and laugh aloud.
Then he began to shake his head.
“That’s too dngerous, Ann, you know.
You could very well end up dead.”
Ann found some faded old clothes.
Then she tried to dress like a bum.
She prayed and found a homeless group,
Who were sharing a bottle of rum.
They shunned her as she appoached.
She was not part of their clan,
But she stayed with them anyway
And observed each woman and man.
Soon an old truck rolled to a stop.
There exited a lady and a man.
They handed a sandwich to everyone.
“God bless you,” said Betty and Dan.
When they left, Ann found a letter.
It fell from the truck to the ground.
It was an eviction notice. Said Ann,
“My charity choice I have found!”
Ann wasted no time that very day,
For such speedy plans she laid.
She found them and wrote a check.
“With a sandwich, your bills are paid!”
Betty and Dan were not homeless yet,
But because they did God’s will,
God honored this with Ann’s gift.
They are helping the homeless still.

- Little Baby JesusLittle baby Jesus,
so soft and so sweet
one day would have nails
pounded into His feet.
Tightly swaddled now,
in His mother’s loving arms
one day He would wear
a crown of prickly thorns.
Small cooing sounds,
He now softly sighs
one day to His Father
He’ll moan forsaken cries.
Wise Men bring to Him,
gifts meant for a King
one day to a cross
His life will painfully cling.
Little baby Jesus,
so soft and so sweet
came into the world
so Satan He could defeat.

- True Christian ChristmasChristmas isn’t showy gifts
Or glittering decoration;
It’s honoring our Savior, Jesus Christ
In humble adoration.
It’s serving those less fortunate,
Meeting their needs before our own;
It’s making sure at Christmas time
That no one is alone.
It’s taking what we would have spent
On things that no one needs,
And using it to help someone
With service and good deeds.
Our Savior showed us how to live
With charity, faith and service.
It makes the holidays a joy,
More peaceful, and less nervous.
So let’s remember Christmas is
About our Savior’s birth;
That’s the way to happiness,
The way to peace on earth.

- One Dark and Starry Night
Star of BethlehemOn a dark and starry night
One star shone particularly bright
And led wisemen to the sight
Where a prince was born that night.
When they arrived upon the scene,
It was almost like a dream.
There lay the tiny Lord Supreme,
‘Tween Joseph and Heaven’s future queen.
The wisemen placed their gifts before him,
To show how much they adored him.
Their souls filled with joy to the brim,
As the angels sang their Heavenly hymn.
Now each Christmas we commemorate,
And rejoice with glee and celebrate,
The birth of Jesus, the one so great,
The Son of God, the Word Incarnate.

- Not Only Christmas DayLord, this is my prayer
Not only on Christmas Day
But until I see You face to face
May I live my life this way:
Just like the baby Jesus
I ever hope to be,
Resting in Your loving arms
Trusting in Your sovereignty.
And like the growing Christ child
In wisdom daily learning,
May I ever seek to know You
With my mind and spirit yearning.
Like the Son so faithful
Let me follow in Your light,
Meek and bold, humble and strong
Not afraid to face the night.
Nor cowardly to suffer
And stand for truth alone,
Knowing that Your kingdom
Awaits my going home.
Not afraid to sacrifice
Though great may be the cost,
Mindful how You rescued me
From broken-hearted loss.
Like my risen Savior
The babe, the child, the Son,
May my life forever speak
Of who You are and all You’ve done.
So while this world rejoices
And celebrates Your birth,
I treasure You, the greatest gift
Unequaled in Your worth.
I long to hear the same words
That welcomed home Your Son,
“Come, good and faithful servant,”
Your Master says, “Well done.”
And may heaven welcome others
Who will join with me in praise
Because I lived for Jesus Christ
Not only Christmas Day

- We Saw a LightWe saw a light shine out afar
On Christmas in the morning,
And knew we straight it was Christ’s star
Bright beaming in the morning.
Then did we fall on bended knee
On Christmas in the morning,
And praised the Lord who’d let us see
His glory at its dawning.
