Today’s Word: ‘Cradle’ as in… every heart becomes a cradle for the Rebirth of Life!
I’ve always been intrigued with the image of our hearts becoming cradles for Christ. It was Martin Luther who gave us the image of the bible as the cradle of Christ – the place where we find him. And yet, it is in our hearts where we find deep connections with those whom we hold there.
When I wrote the second verse for A Christmas Lullaby, I hoped to capture the idea of both the mystery and majesty of Christ resting, abiding, living in our hearts. On this Christmas Eve, our prayer is that our hearts would hold the Christ Child.
Here is A Christmas Lullaby: “On A Night Such As This” Verse 3 and chorus…
“In the mystery and majesty of this night / we gather as one in this hope: That every heart becomes a cradle for the Rebirth of Life! A cradle for the Rebirth of Life!”
“Come and worship the Lord, let the heavens ring! For He comes to bring justice and peace! As the darkness is scattered we rejoice in the light, We rejoice in the light of the Lord! We rejoice in the light of the Lord!”
