Oh Little Town

 

Before the world began
You had a plan
to enter in through
Bethlehem.

Though small and obscure
it’s where Peace touched the world
and all exiles were given
a home land.

*********

You establish the importance of small things.

**********

“You, O Bethlehem Ephrathah,
are only a small village among all the people
of Judah.
Yet a ruler of Israel,
whose origins are from the distant past,
will come from you on My behalf.
The people of Israel will be abandoned to their enemies
until the woman in labor gives birth.
Then at last his fellow countrymen
will return from exile to their own land.
And he will stand to lead his flock with the
Lord’s strength,
in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God.
Then his people will live there undisturbed,
for he will be highly honored around the world.
And he will be the source of peace.”

Micah 5:2-5
