Why Do the Bells of Christmas Ring
By Eugene Field
Why do the bells of Christmas ring?
Why do little children sing?
Once a lovely shining star,
Seen by shepherds from afar,
Gently moved until its light
Made a manger’s cradle bright.
There a darling baby lay,
Pillowed soft upon the hay;
And its mother sung and smiled:
“This is Christ, the Holy Child!”
Therefore bells for Christmas ring,
Therefore little children sing.
God’s Son, the Reason for the Season
On the very first Christmas, Jesus was a tiny baby wrapped in rags and lying in a cow stall. But from the beginning, He was Lord of Life and King of All Creation. Jesus’ birth is reason to re-joice. But so is His death, for when He died and rose again, He conquered sin and its grip on our lives. Jesus is in Heaven, seated at God’s right hand. He’s with every believer on earth, too, through the miracle of the Holy Spirit. And He has promised to be with us al-ways.
God can accomplish surprising results with imperfect, but yielding people.
