What Child is This

The Weary World Rejoices: “Magnificat”—Luke 1:24-56

What Child is This
1 What Child is this, who, laid to rest,
On Mary's lap is sleeping?
Whom angels greet with anthems sweet,
While shepherds watch are keeping?

This, this is Christ, the King,
Whom shepherds guard and angels sing:
Haste, haste to bring Him laud,
The Babe, the Son of Mary!

2 Why lies He in such mean estate,
Where ox and ass are feeding?
Good Christian, fear: for sinners here
The silent Word is pleading.[Chorus]

3 So bring Him incense, gold, and myrrh,
Come, peasant, king to own Him.
The King of kings salvation brings;
Let loving hearts enthrone Him.[Chorus] 

1.     What is this song trying to communicate? 

2.      Read Luke 1:24-56 together.

3.      Rethink this statement, “Mary’s simple faith is the soil out of which a MAGNIFICAT grows!!!”
·        Like Mary, how is your faith?
·        What is your Magnificat? Why did God put you on the earth?
·        What is He calling you to do? Will you do it?
·        How can this Life Group pray for you and encourage you to take the first step?

Have a great week meeting and celebrating Christmas together!
