Merry Christmas From Morning Walk

When deepest darkness hides the soul, that only knows to mourn

A far off light Isaiah holds, a child is to be born

To shepherds, mother and a priest, the angels first proclaim

The glory of his majesties, and “Do not be afraid”

 

A silence of four hundred years, the people did endure

Past echoes of messiah near, his prophecies assure

The psalmist utters painful sighs, how long, how long, O Lord?

In manger does a baby cry, our hope is now restored

 

A grief amidst the watching wait, redeemer do they seek

In temple Anna fasts and prays, may God his promise keep

Lamenting long does Simeon kneel, for Saviour to console

Messiah child, it is revealed, your very arms will hold

 

Though long it took the doubt is quelled, his faithfulness is true

No single word has he withheld, we find our hopes renew

New faith this glimpse of glory lends, a human God became

And this is how our story ends, he will come again

 

May you and your loved ones have a merry Christmas. –The Morning Walk Team
