“MARY HAD A LITTLE LAMB”
You have almost made it. This is the Eve of the day when everything is fulfilled that you have been planning for weeks and preparing to celebrate since you put up the decorations last year. Christmas night will be the first time you have slept comfortably all night since November. All of the details of a Christmas production at your house has kept your mind and body on overtime. So, take a minute and sit in a comfortable setting. Take your Bible and read this poem and the verses listed. It would be good to rest and remember the cause of all that we do now in honor of the birth of the Precious Lamb of God….
Mary Had the Little Lamb
Mary had the little Lamb, who lived before His birth;
Self-existent Son of God, from Heaven He came to Earth.
Mary had the little Lamb; see Him in yonder stall—
Virgin-born Son of God, to save man from the Fall.
Mary had the little Lamb, obedient Son of God;
Everywhere the Father led, His feet were sure to trod.
Mary had the little Lamb, crucified on the tree
The rejected Son of God, He died to set men free.
1 Peter 1:18
Mary had the little Lamb—men placed Him in the grave,
Thinking they were done with Him; to death He was no slave!
Mary had the little Lamb, ascended now is He;
All work on Earth is ended, our Advocate to be.
Mary had the little Lamb—mystery to behold!
From the Lamb of Calvary, a Lion will unfold.
Revelation 5: 5,6
