Born to be Our Friend

"...Truly He taught us to love one another
His law is love and His gospel is Peace.
Chains shall He break for The Slave is Our Brother
and in His Name all oppression shall cease.
The King of Kings lay thus in lowly manger
in all our trials, born to be Our Friend.
He Knows our Need,
to our weakness is No Stranger.
Behold, Your King!
Before Him lowly bend..."

I have thought many times of this verse of my favorite Christmas song, Oh Holy Night, this season. I am so grateful to know that our Savior was born in a stable and placed in a manger on that First Christmas night. And even moreso to know that He really does know our needs and our weaknesses- I need that knowledge right now. We wish everyone a Merry Christmas- hopefully it will meet your expectations whatever they may be!
