The Friendly Beasts
Jesus our brother, strong and good,
Was humbly born in a stable rude,
And the friendly beasts around him stood,
Jesus our brother, strong and good.
This hymn also shows how special Jesus is as God’s son. It shows you how much God cares for him and how much of a sacrifice it would have been for God when Jesus died. With that knowledge in mind, you really start to understand what it was like to care for someone that much and have to sacrifice him so that everyone else could have forgiveness of sins.
Dear God, thank you for all the “lovely beasts” in our world. Thank you for all our family and friends and loved ones. Thank you for sacrificing Jesus for our sins and thank you for having Him born. And thank you for all the things you have done for us. Amen.
