In the Still of the Night

by Charles Robey
(Trussville AL)

God became flesh and dwelt among us

God became flesh and dwelt among us

In the still of the night
God took his earthly flight
To a lowly stable bed
As the Holy word foresaid
Angels harkened to proclaim
The precious Savior's name
Peace on earth good will to all
Humble shepherds they did draw
God shinned brightly in the star
Wise men did follow from afar
Precious gifts they would bring
To worship the new born King
While on earth miracles incurred
By the spreading of God's word
Many hearts opened to believe
As the Gospel they did receive
In the still of the night
God took His heavenly flight
To prepare Heaven's zone
For worship at God's Throne
God's light still shines today
Finding those who are astray
By faith who may believe
God's Grace to them receive

"But when the fullness of time had come, God sent forth his Son, born of woman, born under the law, to redeem those who were under the law, so that we might receive adoption as sons. And because you are sons, God has sent the Spirit of his Son into our hearts, crying, “Abba! Father!” So you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God." (Galatians 4:4-6, ESV)

Yes, it was surely the right time, as three factors had to be in place for the Christ Child to be born:
1. A universal language.
2. A universal peace.
3. A universal desire.
So, how about you, this Christmas season? Do you have a universal heavenly language communicating with your heavenly Father? Do you have a universal peace being in God's will for your life? And, do you have a universal desire to please your heavenly Father, in all that you do?
