Since this year the ladies seem to be lacking on my Christmas song posts, I thought I had better remedy that. When I first heard this song by Francesca Battistelli, the tune moved up to favorite status. Anyone who is a mom can testify the abounding joy that comes once your child finally arrives. Getting to hold your baby overwhelms you with a new kind of love. The thought of Mary feeling the same helped me to identify with the mother of my Savior in a whole new way.
You’re here, I’m holding You so near
I’m staring into the face of my Savior, King and Creator
You could’ve left us on our own, but You’re here
Your arrival, Jesus, was so much more than we could have ever anticipated. Thank you for coming!
