Anyway, the kids did well and of course they all looked adorable! And they did truly remind us about the meaning of Christmas. Here are the words to one of their four songs (and Anna Kate's favorite):
You gave up your throne to be with us
Mary and Joseph's tiny One
How could it be that God would come?
The shepherds became the first to see
How God would set his people free
The hope of the world is Christ the King
So I praise you, Lord
And I worship you forever
So I thank you, Lord
Born in a manger for the cross
You bled and you died to save us
You rose from the grave victorious
So, Anna Kate may not have sung every word the night of the performance, but she did learn them all and through them is coming to understand the reason that we celebrate this baby's birth...born in a manger for the cross. And learning those truths is worth more than a perfect performance any day!
