Happy Today

Our hearts are happy today, for we know Christ as Lord,
He promised us salvation, if we believe His word,
Then follow on the pathway Jesus lived from His birth,
When as a babe in Bethlehem, He came down to earth.

In our hearts burns the flame that Christ lit in our world,
We must tell others of Him, as His banner we unfurl,
Trying to show to others how God would have us live,
Knowing of Jesus’ promise that sins He can forgive.

Where else to turn when troubled by perils of this life?
Our faith in Christ does help us, amid earth’s daily strife.
We have so many reasons to give thanks to our Lord,
But most important is the saving grace of His word.
