31 Days of Christmas Music: Day 10

Hi! It's Jilly. It's already Day 10! Can you believe it?!

The song I want to share with you today I learned when I was in children's choir, but it has been sung by many singers. It is called "In the Bleak Midwinter". The words are a poem by Christina Rosetti. The last verse is my favorite. It says:
What can I give Him, poor as I am?

If I were a shepherd, I would bring a lamb.
If I were a wise man, I would do my part.
Yet, what I can I give Him, give my heart. 
 Isn't that what this Christmas season is all about? Our Savior gave us the greatest gift imaginable. The best thing we can give Him is our heart. We need to follow His example and do those things for our fellow men that He would have us do.


Don't you just love Sissel?! Her voice has such a beautiful, ethereal quality to it. Chills!

Join us Tuesday for the next song in our 31 Days of Christmas Music series!
