advent day 3 – a child promised

Light for the darkness.

 

A child and everlasting Father.

 

Rejoicing and harvest.

 

A child of wondrous counsel.

 

Peace and more peace.

 

A child—the Prince.

 

Slavery lifted. Oppressors broken.

 

A child who is God. A Savior.

 

 

Can you hear the promises? Can you hear the hope?

Prayer—Father, thank you for giving your Son.
