This is a song our choir sang at Christmas but it fits for anytime.
Love came gently, soft, as a Baby born to a lowly virgin girl
Wrapped in rags and laid in a manger, love came gently to our world.
Only shepherds and the wisest found Him beneath the star so bright.
While the nations lay deep in slumber, love came gently in the night.
No applause, no fanfare of trumpets heralding hope had come to earth.
For the Promise tenderly answered, choosing instead a humble birth.
Love came gently, sweetly to save us, knowing the price He'd have to pay.
And to all who trust in the Savior, love comes gently..........
love comes gently, love comes gently still today.A Verse for Today:
John 8:12 NIV
12 When Jesus spoke again to the people, he said, “I am the light of the world. Whoever follows me will never walk in darkness, but will have the light of life.”
A thought prayer for today:
Jesus, you are the light of the world. May your light shine brightly so we can see you everywhere. Help us to spread your light and joy by giving freely and happily to all we meet.
