Still a favorite


Point of Grace

{click on arrow to hear this holy song}


Oh this song...this wonderful song...still a favorite Christmas song of mine. I cry every time I hear it , but I have to listen. It pulls me in and I play it over and over.  It IS the embodiment of Christmas...it IS a holy song. Young Mary giving birth to Baby Jesus and how she must have felt.  Laboring on the cold cobblestones...in a dirty stable.  I can't even imagine it.  He came for US in the most lowly way possible, but yet He came.  For me and for you.  I am so very thankful that He came!

LABOR OF LOVE
sang by Point of Grace

It was not a silent night
There was blood on the ground
You could hear a woman cry
In the allyways that night
On the streets of David's town.
And the stable was not clean
And the cobblestones were cold
And little Mary full of grace
With the tears upon her face
Had no mother's hand to hold.

It was a labor of pain
It was a cold sky above
But for the girl on the ground in the dark
With every beat of her beautiful heart
It was a labor of love.

Noble Joseph at her side
Callused hands and weary eyes
There were no midwives to be found
In the streets of David's town
In the middle of the night.

So he held her and he prayed
Shafts of moonlight on his face
But the baby in her womb
He was the maker of the moon
He was the Author of the faith
That could make the mountains move.

It was a labor of pain
It was a cold sky above
But for the girl on the ground in the dark
With every beat of her beautiful heart
It was a labor of love.

For little Mary full of grace
With the tears upon her face
It was a labor of love.

It was not a silent night
On the streets of David's town...
