welcome 2 our world... what it means to me

I love the song by Chris Rice, Welcome to our World.  It has been special to me for many years because of it's significant words and gentle tune.  

Tears are falling, hearts are breaking
How we need to hear from God
You've been promised, we've been waiting
Welcome Holy Child
Welcome Holy Child

Hope that you don't mind our manger
How I wish we would have known
But Long-awaited Holy Stranger
Make yourself at home
Please make yourself at home

Bring your peace into our violence
Bid our hungry souls be filled
Word now breaking Heaven's silence
Welcome to our world
Welcome to our world

Fragile finger sent to hear us
Tender brow prepared for thorn
Tiny heart whose blood will save us
Unto us is born
Unto us is born

So wrap our injured flesh around you
Breathe our air and walk our sod
Rob our sin and make us holy
Perfect Son of God
Perfect Son of God
Welcome to our world

So, in case you are curious about the title of my blog, "Welcome 2 our World" now you know what I was thinking when I came up with it 6 years ago.  There is nothing more important than daily welcoming Jesus Christ into my world and into the world of my children because after all this is His world and nothing else matters without Him.
