Child So Mild


Luke 2:16-20
New Living Translation (NLT)

16 They hurried to the village and found Mary and Joseph. And there was the baby, lying in the manger. 17 After seeing him, the shepherds told everyone what had happened and what the angel had said to them about this child. 18 All who heard the shepherds’ story were astonished, 19 but Mary kept all these things in her heart and thought about them often. 20 The shepherds went back to their flocks, glorifying and praising God for all they had heard and seen. It was just as the angel had told them.

Mild Child

Oh little child from Bethlehem
With miracles in Your garment’s hem
With such mild courage You took their blows
Then on that third day fiercely rose
And all the while forgiving them

Oh mighty One now seated high
Your name we’re called to glorify
So we proclaim You without shame
And though they treat us just the same
Make forgiveness our glad reply

Oh Shepherd who now lives within
Who is our Lord and yet our friend
We know You answer when we’ve prayed
You still hold us tight when we’re afraid
You are with us until the end

Oh God the Father who He helps us see
You sent Your Son to set us free
He was the Gift with mercy filled
Who healed us by His blood that spilled
And taught what Christmas should be

Thank You for the special gift of Christmas. May we never lose sight of Who that is or refuse to accept Him.
