FIRST CHRISTMAS IN HEAVEN

When I first heard about the school children's shootings this week–my only way to overcome was PRAYER: Here it is.

FIRST CHRISTMAS IN HEAVEN

Zechariah 8:5–The streets are full of boys and girls playing in heaven."

For all our children up in heaven

This Christmas Prayer we offer now;

Although abruptly taken from us

Safely before God they humbly bow.

Like the Wise Men of Ancient Yore

Our sincere reverence now we bring;

Snuggle our children close to your heart

O Christmas Savior, Lord and King.

Christ–the infamous friend of children

On your warm lap they now come to call;

Please cuddle them closely right next to thee

This First Christmas in Heaven, one and all.
