“For unto us a Child is born, unto us a Son is given.”
— Isaiah 9:6
The soft white blanket covers all The temperatures grow cold There is no doubt for each one knows And no one must be told The wintry season has begun With mittens and the caps The boots and shovels all are found The coats, the scarves, the wraps But with these usual yearly preps Our hearts and minds begin To think about our Savior's birth 'Bout Jesus Christ and sin. How God's own Son comes down to us To hearts all dead and cold And covers them with wraps of love As Scripture has foretold. That though our sins as scarlet are They shall be white as snow Though they be red like crimson, yet In Christ they're white as wool. So in this wintry season when The snow has covered all And temperatures drop down a bit Come to God's cattle stall. There you will find a peaceful rest You'll hear the angels sing As you kneel down and there behold Your Savior and your king. For unto you is born this day A Savior from your sin In Him you'll find God's warm embrace Fear not to enter in. He is the One who'll warm your heart And lift your spirit high And in the midst of cold and snow Your every need supply.— A congregational Christmas greeting of Pastor & Mrs. L. Dale
