One Thousand Gifts (Continued)

"For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only Son"
 (John 3:16).

Downhere - How Many Kings lyrics

Follow the star to a place unexpected
Would you believe, after all we've projected, 
A child in a manger?
Lowly and small, the weakest of all
Unlikeliest hero, wrapped in his mother's shawl -
Just a child -
Is this who we've waited for? 'cause... 

How many kings step down from their thrones?
How many lords have abandoned their homes?
How many greats have become the least for me?
And how many gods have poured out their hearts
To romance a world that is torn all apart
How many fathers gave up their sons for me?

Bringing our gifts for the newborn Savior
All that we have, whether costly or meek
Because we believe.
Gold for his honor, and frankincense for his pleasure
And myrrh for the cross he will suffer
Do you believe?
Is this who we've waited for?

All for me... 
All for you...

Lyrics | Downhere lyrics - How Many Kings lyrics

Giving thanks for such a loving God who "stepped down from His throne, abandoned His home, became the least for me, poured out His heart to romance a world that is torn all apart and a Father who gave up His son for me".  Thank-you, Father.

Continuing to give thanks...
