Keith and Kristyn Getty wrote a new hymn in 2011 titled “Joy has Dawned” (you may follow the link to hear this new hymn). This powerful hymn tells the Christmas account in a thoughtful way.
The third verse reads:
Shepherds bow before the Lamb
Gazing at the glory
Gifts of men from distant lands
Prophesy the story
Gold a King is born today
Incense God is with us
Myrrh His death will make a way
And by His blood He’ll win us.
How incredible that God became flesh to reconcile us to Himself. This gift of love is free to all who believe in Jesus Christ. We encourage all to join us this Sunday, December 23, for a celebration of the “Joy [that] had Dawned” at 10 am.
Following our morning worship service will be a traditional delicious meal, and all are welcome to join.
