The group "This Hope" sang at a Christmas Program our family was involved with last year. They are a wonderful, upbeat, energetic group of men. Their accapella music is beautiful. The following song is from their Christmas "album". Its asks a very important question...Do You Know HIM Better than you did last year?
Words and Music by Daniel Johnston & This Hope
I can’t believe it’s December Another year has slipped away It seems like I was taking down This tree just yesterday Another busy, frantic season All my presents bought and paid Am I closer to the reason That we celebrate this day Do you know Him better than you did last year Is your song a little brighter filled with Christmas cheer When you hear joy to the world does it make you want to sing Does your heart so love to celebrate the season Are you walking talking captivated with the reason Singing glory in the highest its Christmas time again Finally sitting by the fire Thinking back on what has been My life begs the question What is lasting in the end Has my purpose been to serve Him To share His gift with all my friends Will I know and love Him better When Christmas comes again When the celebration of His birth has come and gone Let us live our lives to know Him all year long Listen Closely to the spirit He is calling us again To daily find that quiet place and spend some time with him
Something to think about. Do WE know HIM better than we did last year?
Have we read and studied His word, prayed to Him and asked for knowledge,
has our love for Him grown & matured any over the last year,
do we meditate on the Lord and His goodness and mercy, have we shared
His gospel with anyone in the last year, have we faithfully served him,
supported His ministries, or encouraged anyone to know Him on a deeper,
more intimate level?
Lots of questions, but really only 2 answers ~ Yes or No.
No one can answer the questions for you ~ honestly answer the questions
for yourself, your life, and your family.
