Who Is This Child Before Me?

Here is my presentation entitled, “Who Is This Child Before Me?” A PDF of the paper is included in the link. Though it was written for the Lutheran Homeschooling Association Annual Symposium, it is a important read (or watch) for all Christian parents.

Hymn of the Week-Trinity 26

ELH 544 Wake, Awake, For Night Is Flying verses 1-2.

“Wake, awake, for night is flying,”

The watchmen on the heights are crying,

“Awake, Jerusalem, arise!”

It is midnight, we are weary,

With voices strong they call us clearly:

“Where are you now, O virgins wise?

The Bridegroom comes, awake!

Arise! Your lamps now take!


With bridal careYourselves prepare

To feast with Him, your Groom most fair.”

2. Zion hears the watchword sounding,

With bridal joy her heart is bounding,

She wakes, and breaks the spell of sleep.

For her Lord comes forth in splendor,

All rich in grace, truth’s strong Defender!

Her Star grows bright mid darkness deep.

Now come, O precious Crown,

Lord Jesus, God’s own Son.

Hail, Hosanna!

We enter all,

The marriage hall,

To eat the Supper at Your call.

Hymn of the Week- Trinity 22

ELH #553 Behold, A Host Arrayed In White vv.1,2

1. Behold a host, arrayed in white,

Like thousand snow-clad mountains bright;

With palms they stand. Who is this band

Before the throne of light?

Lo, these are they, of glorious fame,

Who from the great affliction came

And in the flood of Jesus’ blood

Are cleansed from guilt and blame.

Now gathered in the holy place,

Their voices they in worship raise;

Their anthems swell where God doth dwell

Mid angels’ songs of praise.

2. Despised and scorned, they sojourned here;

But now, how glorious they appear!

Those martyrs stand, a priestly band,

God’s throne forever near.

So oft in troubled days gone by,

In anguish they would weep and sigh;

At home above the God of love

For aye their tears shall dry.

They now enjoy their Sabbath rest,

The paschal banquet of the blest;

The Lamb, their Lord, at festal board

Himself is host and guest.

Hymn of the Week – Trinity 20

ELH #517 If God Himself Be for Me vv. 1-3, 5,6

1. If God Himself be for me,

I may a host defy;

For when I pray, before me

My foes confounded fly.

If Christ, the Head, befriend me,

If God be my support,

The mischief they intend me

Shall quickly come to naught.

2. This I believe, yea, rather,

In this I make my boast,

That God is my dear Father,

The Friend who loves me most;

And that, whate’er betide me,

My Savior is at hand

Though stormy seas to guide me

And bring me safe to land.

3. I build on this foundation:

That Jesus and His blood

Alone are my salvation,

The true eternal good.

Without Him all that pleases

Is valueless on earth;

The gifts bestowed by Jesus

Alone my love are worth.

5. He canceled my offenses,

And saved my soul from death;

’Tis He who ever cleanses

Me from my sins through faith.

In Him I can be cheerful,

Bold, and undaunted aye.

In Him I am not fearful

Of God’s great Judgment Day.

6. Naught, naught can e’er condemn me,

Nor set my hope aside;

Now hell no more can claim me,

Its fury I deride.

No sentence e’er reproves me,

No ill destroys my peace,

For Christ, my Savior, loves me

And shields me with His grace.
