Tender + Mild - VRSLY Devotional - 12.19.17

Silent Night, Holy Night
All is calm, All is bright
Round yon virgin, Mother and child
Holy infant so tender and mild
Sleep in heavenly peace
Sleep in heavenly peace

Lyrics from 'Silent Night' by Simon Lole

Tender and mild doesn't seem to be as easily understood as it may have been when these lyrics were written. I've heard a few of the teens in my youth group say that those words make them feel like they're describing a chicken, and not the Son of God.

So if those words don't quite help you grasp the description of Baby Jesus in Silent Night, try thinking gentle, serene, calm, or peaceful. That's the kind of tender and mild we're singing about. Praise God for the gift He gave us on that Holy Night!
