Andrew has been taking violin lessons for about 2 1/2 years. He has had the privilege of playing at church several times in the past few months. On the evening of December 25th, he played his violin at the annual German Christmas Service hosted by our church. This service is spoken entirely in the German language. It is always amazing to me how we are blessed by this event even though no one in our family can speak German! The spirit of the Lord seems to translate this beautiful service for all of us! Andrew choose a beautiful song titled One Small Child. (Click on the arrow above to hear him play. You will also need to click the stop button on My Playlist.) This is one of my favorite Christmas songs, here are the lyrics...
One Small Child By David Meece
One small child in a land of a thousand,One small dream of a Savior tonight,
One small hand reaching out to the starlight, One small city of life.
One king bringing his gold and his riches,One king ruling an army of might,
One king kneeling with incense and candlelight, One King bringing us life.
Chorus: See him lying, a cradle beneath him. See him smiling in the stall.
See his mother praising his father. See his tiny eyelids fall.
One small light from the flame of a candle, one small light from a city of might,
One small light from the stars in the endless night, one small light from a face
Chorus: See the shepherds kneeling before him, See the kings on bended knee,
See his mother praising his Father. See the Blessed Infant sleep.
One small child in a land of a thousand. One small dream in a people of might.
One small hand reaching out to the starlight, One small Savior of life.
