“My Christmas Testimony,” Friend, December 2019
It’s true. I know
What happened in that village long ago—
How one bright star did light the way
To where the infant Christ Child lay,
So humbly in His bed of hay.
It’s true. I know—
Because the holy scriptures tell me so—
Of angels’ music in the air,
Of Babe and mother sweet and fair,
And shepherds sent to find them there.
It’s true. I know.
The Holy Ghost has whispered that it’s so,
That Jesus, born that holy night,
Has filled the world with truth and light
And showed us how to live what’s right.
I know. Oh, yes! I know!
