Merry Christmas!

For centuries, through endless night,
We wandered lost, without a light.
No day, no light, though sun shown down,
In night of sin we were always found.
Prophecies spoke of one who’d come,
Shining brighter than the sun.
He’d break through the darkest night;
And to the lost He’d shine a light.
A lamb, a king, a sacrifice,
A star who would from Jacob rise:
For this we waited and watched to see
The Light who’d come and set us free.
But He did not come as we had thought
With power and riches for His lot.
That Bethlehem night, when He came down
He had no riches, no kingly crown.
As a babe He came to Earth,
Child of a virgin birth.
He was born in the most unexpected place of all:
The stable of a humble inn, so quiet and so small.
There was no room at any inn;
No other place to welcome Him.
Yet o’er that stable a new star shone out,
Proclaiming His birth north, east, west, and south.
And to lonely shepherds now appeared
A sight that brought both joy and fear.
“Do not fear!” spoke angel bright.
“I bring good news for you this night!
Christ the Savior is born to you!
To the stable, go and see, ‘tis true!”
The angels filled the starry sky,
Singing “Glory be to God on high!”
To Bethlehem the shepherds went
And found it as the angel said.
Through the town they then returned,
Proclaiming to all what they’d seen and heard.
And following the star from Eastern lands,
Strangers came from o’er desert sands.
Three kings came to see the Light,
Born upon that silent night.
Gold, myrrh, and incense to Him they bring
To give honor to the King of Kings.
But the richest of gifts could never compare
To God’s greatest gift who was lying there.
Still He shines His light today
Guiding us to God’s bright day.
And one day when all darkness flees,
The one true Light will reign supreme.
Now on this day of Jesus’ birth,
We remember when He came to Earth,
To be for those who are lost, a light,
And break through sin’s accursed night.
Then the angel said to them, "Do not be afraid, for behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For there is born to you this day in the city of David a Savior who is Christ the Lord."
~Luke 2:10-11

Merry Christmas, everyone!
