Christmas Favourites

One of the things that I love about Christmas is the regular re-visiting of favourites; whether it is food, decorations, or music, we all have our favourite things. My kids have their favourite Christmas cookies and treats, and we have our favourite music.

For the rest of December, I'm going to be posting on Sunday the songs that have been my favourites over the last few years.

Today, I offer Michael Card's "The Promise," which comes the CD with the same name. Both my husband and I consider this one of our favourite recordings.

The Lord God said when time was full
He would shine His light in the darkness
He said a virgin would conceive
And give birth to the Promise
For a thousand years the dreamers dreamt
And hoped to see His love
The Promise showed their wildest dreams
Had simply not been wild enough
But the Promise showed their wildest dreams
Had simply not been wild enough

Chorus:

The Promise was love and the Promise was life
The Promise meant light to the world
Living proof Jehovah saves
For the name of the Promise was Jesus

The Faithful One saw time was full
And the ancient pledge was honored
So God the Son, the Incarnate One
His final Word, His own Son
Was born in Bethlehem
But came into our hearts to live
What more could God have given
Tell me what more did He have to give
What more could God have given
Tell me what more did He have to give
