Start at the Manger

I'm so excited now that Christmastime is here. I can't believe how quickly it has come! The whole month of December has always been my most favorite time of year! I just love the feeling it brings! But the greatest significance is definitely the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ. I am so thankful that God saw fit to send His son to the earth to save mankind from sin. We have great reason to celebrate all month (and year!) long. I thought I would share a song that came to mind. We sing it at church, but when I searched for it online I couldn't find anything about it at all. Hmmm.... therefore, I have no idea who wrote this song! Oh, well. I'll have to type the words from memory! :)

Start at the Manger

Start at the manger on a cold winter night
Look for the star in the sky and follow its light
It leads to a Savior for a world that is lost
Start at the manger, then go to the cross

Start at the manger at the child in the hay
The gift from our Father in heaven, the price he would pay
To save all his children no matter the cost
Start at the manger, then go to the cross

Imagine that you owned the wealth of the world
All of its silver and gold
But what will you do if tomorrow arrives
And your heart is empty and cold?

Start at the manger where redemption began
When Jesus stepped down from his throne to die as a lamb
All of our riches, we will count them as lost
If we start at the manger, then go to the cross

I hope you all enjoy the month ahead, as you celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ! Praise the Lord all the earth! :)

"This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins." 1 John 4:9-10

Lindsay: Thank you! I guess I didn't realize this song wasn't very "popular" (can't think of a better word at the moment)! I thought it was funny that I couldn't find one thing about it on the internet! :)
