To Hold

We sang a song in church last Sunday.

The memory of holding my new granddaughter, Eleanor, was fresh in my memory.

The lyrics brought tears to my eyes.

How sweet to hold a newborn baby,
And feel the pride and joy she gives;
But greater still the calm assurance:
This child can face uncertain days because He Lives!

Yes.  What a gift we have in a baby born for us who is Christ the Lord and lives today!

Because He lives, I can face tomorrow,
Because He lives, all fear is gone;
Because I know He holds the future,
And life is worth the living,
Just because He lives!

Celebrate with me.
Accept this gift as your very own
and let Him hold your hearts, 
your fears, and your future.
