Advent Day 21 - Gentle Mary Laid Her Child

For the Lord, the Most High, is awesome, a great king over all the earth.

Psalm 47:2

Participate in the full devotional Prepare Ye!: Devotions for Advent, written by Reed Lessing. Copies of the book may be picked up in the BSLC Welcome Center.

Music suggestions to accompany today's devotion include "Gentle Mary Laid Her Child."

Gentle Mary laid her Child

Lowly in a manger;

There He lay, the undefiled,

To the world a Stranger.

Such a Babe in such a place,

Can he be the saviour?

Ask the saved of all the race

Who have found His favour.

Angels sang about His birth,

Wise men sought and found Him;

Heaven's star shone brightly forth

Glory all around Him.

Shepherds saw the wondrous sight,

Heard the angels singing;

All the plains were lit that night,

All the hills were ringing.

Gentle Mary laid her Child

Lowly in a manger;

He is still the undefiled,

But no more a Stranger.

Son of God of humble birth,

Beautiful the story;

Praise His Name in all the earth,

Hail! the King of Glory!

We will also be hosting weekly worship services and meals during the season of Advent. Join us on Wednesday nights for worship and fellowship.
