Merry Christmas!!

From our family to yours, may this be a joyous and Christ-filled holiday!

Hands by Paul Brandt/Liz Brandt

It is the greatest story ever told
The prince leaves the palace and his noble throne 

To fight a battle for his subject's soul 
The fate of the world in his royal hands 

And it was an unlikely battle ground 
With the cows and the sheep and the shepherds gathered round 
As Mary held him her heart began to pound 
The weight of the world in her baby's hands 

Betrayed by the very hearts he came to save 
Father forgive them, someone heard him say 
Then like a gift, he gave his life away 
Held out to the world with his nail-pierced hands 

The hands that put the stars in place 
Bound by hands he made 

When people ask what Christmas means to me 
I think of the prince upon that Christmas tree 
I tell them about how his love set me free 
When he changed my life with a touch of his hands 

With his hands

Until next time...
