But you, Bethlehem, King David’s country, the runt of the litter. From you will come the leader Jesus who will shepherd the world. He’ll be no upstart, no pretender. His family tree is ancient and distinguished. He will stand tall in his shepherd-rule by God’s strength, centered in the majesty of God-Revealed. And the people will have a good and safe home, for the whole world will hold him in respect. He will be the peacemaker of the world!
Prayer: Lord thank you that it doesn’t matter where I was born I can do all things with you. Amen.
Song: Once in Royal David City.
