A sharing by Helen Chang for this song:

‘Tis that time of the year when we wish each other a Happy Christmas, how nice it is! Yet I have wondered if there is a better wish I could pass to others. Given the challenge of COVID-19 in the world this year, people are in need of peace of mind and to know the meaning of life; no wonder many songs and articles have been written on these topics online. I also began to ponder more on the Priestly Blessing (in Numbers 6:24-26) which Yahweh spoke to Moses and instructed him to tell Aaron and his sons to bless the Israelites with it. Oh what a gracious and loving blessing indeed! Yet after a careful reading of Numbers 5–6, I realised that such a blessing is, after all, for His covenant people who would deal with their sins thoroughly as instructed. As I perceive God’s gracious and compassionate heart in this blessing and His generosity to bless His people, this deeply refreshed my heart. So let us be like Christ in making Yahweh known in our lives such that others may be drawn to Him and be able to share this special blessing also!
