Tonight, we will light the fifth candle of Advent, that of Praise.
The Lord God said when time was full
He would shine His light in the darkness
He said a virgin would conceive
And give birth to the Promise
For a thousand years the dreamers dreamt
And hoped to see His love
The Promise showed their wildest dreams
Had simply not been wild enough
- The Promise, Michael Card
We praise God that Jesus, the Christ, came into this world, lived a sinless life, died for the sins of mankind and, most importantly, was raised from the dead.
