A CHRISTMAS GIFT

Jesus was born to save the world

He left His Kingly throne in heaven

Was born of a virgin in Bethlehem

Angelic beings announced His birth

While shepherds tarried

To worship the Prince of Peace

God’s people slept

Heeding none of the signs

Recorded in Scripture

Held clearly in sight

Those filled with the Spirit

Anticipating a Savior

Knew Him on sight

In the temple

Simeon saw the glorious salvation

God has prepared in Christ Jesus

Anna, a prophetess, bore witness to Christ

To those in Jerusalem seeking redemption

Today we prepare to receive the Christ Child

His presence, a gift

From an all loving God

Accept Him

Embrace Him

Let love for Him blossom

Till the world seems dim

And you want only to share Him

For heaven awaits

When He comes again

As Conqueror and King

To take His own home
