The first Christmas song

Were you there when I laid the earth’s foundations..or cast it’s cornerstone…and all the morning stars sang together and the sons of God shouted for joy. Job 38 1-7

On the first Christmas a star sang over the place Jesus laid and angels shouted songs of joy. Shepherds and Magi heard their songs and came to see the Baby. The unborn John the Baptist leaped in his mother’s womb to the rhythm of the song that was written before the foundation of the world. Heaven and nature sang and still sings about these “tidings of great joy.” As each of us hear the song and comprehend its meaning our hearts beat to its rhythm and our voices join the song. As our relationships with Him grow we continually discover themes and variations on the song of stars and angels and find new harmonies to sing.

Thank you for the song that heaven and nature sings. Thank you for teaching me to sing it too.
