LESSONS AND HANDOUTS FOR THIS WEEK
World Sunday School first appeared on the Internet on May 14, 2003. Since that time, this independent website has supplied weekly graded Sunday School lessons and handouts (and, often, coloring pages) to help Sunday School teachers worldwide. We hope to help preserve the Sunday School movement which had its glory days in the 1930's. In a time when so many churches are downsizing Sunday Schools, we aim to preserve this Christian teaching to enrich the life of children and youth worldwide.

This week many people around the world will celebrate Christmas. Sadly, there are many who do not even realize why we celebrate this occasion. There are some who know but have forgotten the real reason. For some it will be a time of stress, worry, and selfishness. For those that understand the reason for this season, we will celebrate with much joy at the gift given many years ago in a stable in Bethlehem, Judaea, the greatest gift given to man kind from our Father. What was this gift? His name is JESUS.
GOD Bless You All. : )
Christmas the Reason
O Holy Night
O Holy Night! The stars are brightly shining; it is the night of the Dear Savior’s birth.
Long lay the world in sin and error pining. Till He appeared and the Spirit felt its worth.
A thrill of hope the weary world rejoices, for yonder breaks a new and glorious morn.
Fall on your knees! Oh, hear the angel voices! O night divine, the night when Christ was born;
O night, O Holy Night, O night divine! O night, O Holy Night, O night divine!
Led by the light of faith serenely beaming, with glowing hearts by His cradle we stand.
O'er the world a star is sweetly gleaming, now come the wise men from out of the Orient land.
The King of kings lay thus lowly manger; in all our trials born to be our friend.
He knows our need, our weakness is no stranger, Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!
Behold your King! Before him lowly bend!
Truly He taught us to love one another, His law is love and His gospel is peace.
Chains he shall break, for the slave is our brother. And in his name all oppression shall cease.
Sweet hymns of joy in grateful chorus raise we, with all our hearts we praise His holy name.
Christ is the Lord! Then ever, ever praise we, His power and glory ever more proclaim!
His power and glory ever more proclaim!
Placide Cappeau de Roquemaure 1847.

Devotional Poem: Have You Any Room for Jesus
Have you any room for Jesus,
He who bore your load of sin?
As He knocks and asks admission,
Sinner, will you let Him in?
Room for Jesus, King of glory!
Hasten now, His word obey;
Swing the heart’s door widely open,
Bid Him enter while you may.
