Your Christmas Guest
Wednesday, December 12, 2012
By James Dillet Freeman
Take time this Christmas day to go
A little way apart
And with the hands of prayer prepare
The house that is your heart.
Brush out the dusty fears, brush out
The cobwebs of your care
Till in the house that is your heart
It's Christmas everywhere.
Light every window up with love,
And let your love shine through,
That they who walk outside may share
The blessed light with you.
Then will the rooms with joy be bright,
With peace the heart be blessed,
And Christ will enter in
To be your Christmas guest.
Wise men from the East came to Jerusalem, asking "Where is the child who has been born king of the Jews? For we observed his star at its rising, and have come to pay him homage."
