One King

 

                I love the carols of Christmas! There are so many emotions expressed through the various tempos and poignant lyrics. And over the  years, each one becomes associated with memories of special times with special people. I will admit that the Christmas genre is the largest section of my CD colletion because it seems each year I add another artist or group's holiday offering.

              One of my favorites is David Phelps' One Wintry Night CD. I hve found myself meditation on the words of one of the songs which he wrote One King. It is inspired by my favorite incarnation passage found in the first chapter of the Gospel of John, which speaks of God's great love for humanity. The song tells of how god from the beginning of creation spoke love to all humankind, but it was spoken in a language that was foreign to them. So this magnificent God, who created all that is, left His rightful place in heaven to humbly enter the world His designed. The chorus says:

So He came with the starlight and love in His eyes, no regal welcome for His infant cries. There have been many babies to become a king, but only one King become a baby.

May you experience anew the wonderful love of King Jesus this Holy Season.

 

"The Word become flesh and made his dwelling among us. We have seen his glory, the glory of the One and Only, who came from the Father, full of grace and truth."

John 1:14
