Praise God

Source unknown

Praise God for Christmas. Praise Him for the incarnation, for the word made flesh.I will not sing of shepherds watching flocks on frosty nights, or angel choristers.I will not sing of a stable bare in Bethlehem, or lowing oxen, wise men trailing star with gold, frankincense, and myrrh.

Tonight I will sing praise to the Father who stood on heaven's threshold and said farewell to his Son as he stepped across the stars to Bethlehem and Jerusalem.

And I will sing praise to the infinite, eternal Son, who became most finite, a baby who would one day be executed for my crime.Praise him in the heavens, Praise him in the stable, Praise him in my heart.

Joseph Bayly
