Silent Night...

Silent night! Holy night!

Son of God love's pure light

Radiant beams from thy holy face

With the dawn of Redeeming Grace

Jesus, Lord at thy birth.

I’ve been talking and thinking about this verse of Silent Night, specifically the phrase….”with the dawn of Redeeming Grace”- Jesus Christ birth certainly was not only a Silent Night, Holy Night….in a Judean countryside, but also in all of History!

The world was dark, sold to sin and condemnation. Yet, God in pure Love and Light sent His Son…to pierce the darkness. And with the birth of Jesus, Grace dawned in the midst of darkness the Redeeming unfolding plan and accomplishment of Love- culminated at the death, burial and resurrection! What a beautiful Silent and Holy Night. Praise the Lord.
