Luke 2:47–48 (Listen)
47 And all who heard him were amazed at his understanding and his answers. 48 And when his parents1 saw him, they were astonished. And his mother said to him, “Son, why have you treated us so? Behold, your father and I have been searching for you in great distress.”
Hymn: TLH 89, st. 5: To Thee my Heart I Offer
5. Let me be Thine forever,
O Christ-child sweet and dear;
Uphold me with Thy mercy
And be Thou ever near.
From Thee I gladly all receive,
And what is mine to Thee I give.
My heart, my soul, and all I own:
Let these be Thine alone.
