Hello All, Grace and Peace be to you! I heard a song about the night JESUS was born and I have to share the words. It really brings into reality about what happened that night! I really do not think it was a "silent night." The BIBLE says in Luke 2:9-13 there were shepherds watching their flocks by night, and an angel of the LORD came down and glory shone around. ( I am sure when it shines it is very bright) After the angel tells the shepherds where to find JESUS, a multitude ( many angels means VERY BRIGHT) of heavenly hosts came and sang praises to GOD. I do not think they were whispering...LOL! What woman had a baby and did not scream? Silent Night...hummm? GOD wanted us to know HIS SON was coming into the world as prophesied by the prophets of old.
Words to Labor of Love...
It was not a silent night, there was blood on the ground. You could hear a woman cry in the alley way that night in the streets of David's town. And the stables was not clean, and the cobble stones were cold. Little Mary full of grace, with the tears upon her face had no mothers hand to hold.
chorus--- It was a labor of pain. It was a cold sky above, but for the girl on the ground in the dark, with every beat of her beautiful heart, it was a labor of love.
Noble Joseph by her side, callused hands and weary eyes. There were no midwives to be found on the streets of Davids town in the middle of the night. So he held her and he prayed, shafts of moon-light on his face, but the baby in her womb, HE was the maker of the moon, HE was the author of the faith that could make the mountains move.
chorus---It was a labor of heart, it was a labor of love. For little Mary full of grace with the tears upon her face, it was a labor of love.
