Today we began learning a new song entitled By Candlelight (music and lyrics by Ruth Elaine Schram). A beautiful Christmas song that puts emphasis on the holy, still night, illuminated by the light of candles.
While going through the music, I found myself wondering about this particular phrase:
And as I mulled it over in my finite mind, it occurred to me that of all the places where the Savior could have been born (not to mentioned where He should have been born), He was born in the only place where everyone – and everything present – could testify of His name.
And the animals.
I believe they knew who He was.
I believe they knew He was their Creator.
And though they could not speak to testify of Him, I believe that their testimony of Him was in their willingness to “share their humble abode with Him.”
