Advent 2015 Day 5: Good News


Turn on the television – terror see –

And watch the news – the breaking horrors hear –

Roads ravaged, wrecked, in rubble and debris –

More car bombings – more fanatics to fear –

Another nation under terror shakes –

Another murder, more dividing views –

Another city destroyed when earth quakes –

That everlasting love would in us burn.

The Gospel is the testimony true:

This News is always good and always new.



Isaiah 9:6

For to us a child is born,
    to us a son is given;
and the government shall be upon[a] his shoulder,
    and his name shall be called[b]
Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God,
    Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace.
