Christmas Carol Of The Day

 I was recently listening to a Christmas album that had this beautiful song on it and was touched by the amazing lyrics. The words are bursting with truth and life as a prayer is birthed in the heart of the song. Let our hearts be full of thanks-giving to the One who Himself is the essence of hope eternal. 

Born On A New Day
by 
Phillip Lawson

You are the new day.
Meekness, love, humility
Come down to us this day:
Christ, your birth has proved to me
You are the new day.
Quiet in a stall you lie,
Angels watching in the sky
Whisper to you from on high,
"You are the new day."

When our life is darkest night,
Hope has burned away;
Love, your ray of guiding light,
Show us the new day.
Love of all things great and small,
Leaving none, embracing all,
Fold around me when I fall,
Bring in the new day.

This new day will be
A turning point for everyone
If we let the Christ-child in, and
Reach for the new day.
Christ the Way, the Truth, the Life;
Healing sadness, ending strife;
You, we welcome, Lord of Life,
Born on a new day.
You are the new day.
