Haste, haste to bring Him laud, The Babe, the Son of Mary.
This morning I went to church per usual. Sunday, after all. Hurrying, to gather some goodies for my Sunday School boys. Hurrying, my morning resistant daughter out the door on time…which usually is an exercise in frustration for all parties. Hubby got to miss out on this morning’s musings as he was working. Hurrying and last minute details that always seem to rear their little heads on Sunday morning, like gremlins.
Peace. Be still.
We rush into church. Surprise! You mean we are not in the nursery this Sunday?
I couldn’t recall, so figured just better pop in and check!
Oh, very good, we can just slip quietly into service.
Peace be still.
It is good to give thanks to the Lord.
Here I am on Sunday.
Another week behind me.
Another week ahead.
Worship Him and Know He is God.
Today I was brought to tears by one of the most eloquently written Christmas Hymns.
I was reminded of how much I need that little one who came in the manger. Today. The words ministered to my soul. Again. My heart is humbled. My hurrying exchanged for humility, grace, and awe. Again. The powerful history of Truth, entering time. The power of the amazing truth shared in a beautiful song.
Sing it anew today, will you?
What child is this who laid to rest On Mary’s lap is sleeping Whom angels greet with anthems sweet While shepherds watch are keeping
This, this is Christ the King Whom shepherds guard and angels sing Haste, haste to bring him laud The babe, the son of Mary
Why lies he in such mean estate Where ox and ass are feeding Good Christian fear, for sinners here The silent Word is pleading
So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh Come peasant king to own Him The King of kings, salvation brings Let loving hearts enthrone Him This, this is Christ the King Whom shepherds guard and angels sing Haste, haste to bring him laud The babe, the son of Mary
