The Comfort of His Love

The Comfort of His Love

A baby was born in a manger
While a bright star shone down from above
And the world learned the depths of God's mercy
And the comfort and strength of His love.
May the thought of that long ago Christmas
And the meaning it's sure to impart,
Bring a wonderful message of comfort
And a deep new peace to your heart.

Thank you for visting tonight. Back when we put up real trees we did exactly as you - we'd tie them to a nail above the window to keep them upright. Wishing you a very Merry Christmas.
