This morning I was back in my old school for the carol service and refreshments! It was really lovely to be back and see people – old classmates, teachers, friends! I think today is the first time in a long long time that I have actually thought about the lyrics to carols. I realised how powerful and beautiful some of them are!

Hail the heaven-born Prince of Peace!
Hail the Son of Righteousness!
Light and life to all He brings
Risen with healing in His wings
Mild He lays His glory by
Born that man no more may die
Born to raise the sons of earth
Born to give them second birth

How amazing are those words?? They really encouraged me today. Born that man no more may die. I live forever more through Jesus. He is life!
