a baby will come...

The following is a song that was sent to me recently by a friend and it's been a wonderfully meaningful addition to my Advent journey. It's such a beautiful telling of humanity's story of waiting as we look toward the coming of Christ this Christmas. You can listen to it here.

A Baby Will Come by Bill Wolf
The kings of this world
/Have torn it apart/But we can take heart/A baby will come

To the hungry and meek/To those who grieve/To the broken, in need/A baby will come

We have known pain/We’ve felt death’s sting/God, help us believe/This baby will come

The angel appeared/Said do not fear/For peace is here/A baby has come

The advent of life/Let hope arise/We’ve our Savior and Christ/The Baby has come

We’ve waited so long/God, for Your mighty arm/May our doubts ever calm/For the Baby has come

The proud will be low/The humble will know/They’re valued and loved/For the Baby has come

Cause the kings of this world/Won’t have the last word/That, God, is Yours/For the Baby has come

Blessings as you wait for Christ to come and as you simultaneously live in the joy that He's already here.
