Mike and Molly and Baby at Advent

December 5

Luke 1:46–55

When Mary found out that she was to be God's special servant, she was so happy and excited that she sang a kind of song. Christmas really is a time of singing. Putting things to music helps us to express our joyfulness. Ask everyone in your family which is their favorite carol. Which is your favorite?

Tune: Good Christian Men Rejoice

Good Christian men, rejoice,
With heart, and soul, and voice;
Give ye heed to what we say:
Jesus Christ is born today;
Ox and ass before him bow,
And he is in the manger now.
Christ is born today!
Christ is born today!
