O Sing to God*
O sing to God your hymns of gladness,
Ye loving hearts your tribute pay;
Your Lord is born this happy day.
Then pierce the sky with songs of gladness,
Disperse the shades of gloom and sadness;
O sing to God your hymns of gladness.
Mark how the Mother lulls to slumber
Her new born Babe with tenderest love,
And guards her treasure from above!
O blessed Child with her who bore Thee,
We, too, will kneel in faith before Thee.
O God Incarnate, we adore Thee!
O Word of God for us incarnate,
By faith we hear Thine angels sing,
Their hymns of praise to Thee their King.
We join with them in adoration,
We pour to Thee our supplication,
That Thou wouldst grant us, Lord, salvation.
My dearest child, it is the season for remembering My Son’s birth. Although your calendar does not point to the correct day, it is truly fitting to celebrate the Incarnation and birth of your King.
The Seed of Life that brought forth the Babe whose birth you celebrate has been implanted in your being when you accepted Christ Jesus as your Lord and Savior. I have taught you about the eternal life-spark that is burning within you for many months now.
It is time to allow Me to rise up in you so that the world might see Me in demonstration through you. Yes, even as My Son revealed Me as Father to His followers, you are to reveal the SON to this generation in and through your words, actions, and writings.
The words of this song exalts the Word of God — The Incarnate One. You are now to be part of a company who will not just sing about it, but will demonstrate and reveal the Incarnate One in all that you do. My Word is Alive and HE lives in you and every true child of God.
Open up the door of your heart and receive the fullness of the Living Word: the Seed of the Incarnate One. All limits are off, if you will choose wisely and keep your focus on Me.
As you celebrate the birth of your King, meditate on His indwelling presence He wants you to work with Him to demonstrate His Love and Goodness to this darkened world.
The Light is shining and will not be quenched. Choose to stand and stay the course. If I came as a Babe, I will return as King of Kings — Victorious — as I foretold.
Trust Me. The best is yet to be. Receive My blessings. All is well. Shalom.
