As we turn our thoughts to gratefulness
for all that You have done
This month we will celebrate Your Birth
God's one and only Son.
What an example You set before us
to teach us how to live
You walked the places on this Earth
and taught us how to give.

"Thank You" seems so insufficient
when I think of what You gave
And how I want to be more like You
and live my life so brave.
Those times when I do so stumble
and think I've lost my way
I have only to cry out to You
You are never faraway.

So I humbly come into Your Presence
thanking You anew
For the many blessings in my life
and how You see me through...
Whatever is before me, I will always
need Your guiding Hand
To be upon my very life
and help me to understand.

"But as many as received him, to them gave he power to become
the sons of God, even to them that believe on his name:
And the Word was made flesh and dwelt among us, (and we
beheld his glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father,)
full of grace and truth. For the law was given by Moses,
but grace and truth came by Jesus Christ."
John 1: 12,14,17
