By: By Mary Fairchild Christianity ExpertNot only on Christmas DayBut until I see You face to faceMay I live my life this way:Just like the baby JesusI ever hope to be,Resting in Your loving armsTrusting in Your sovereignty.And like the growing Christ childIn wisdom daily learning,May I ever seek to know YouWith my mind and spirit yearning.Like the Son so faithfulLet me follow in Your light,Meek and bold, humble and strongNot afraid to face the night.Nor cowardly to sufferAnd stand for truth alone,Knowing that Your kingdomAwaits my going home.Not afraid to sacrificeThough great may be the cost,Mindful how You rescued meFrom broken-hearted loss.Like my risen SaviorThe babe, the child, the Son,May my life forever speakOf who You are and all You’ve done.So while this world rejoicesAnd celebrates Your birth,I treasure You, the greatest giftUnequaled in Your worth.I long to hear the same wordsThat welcomed home Your Son,”Come, good and faithful servant,”Your Master says, “Well done.”And may heaven welcome othersWho will join with me in praiseBecause I lived for Jesus ChristNot only Christmas Day
