Christmas is the time for celebrating Jesus' birth!

Updated on December 18, 2013

Baby Jesus' birth

Christmas is the time to tell the story

Of how Christ came from Heaven above

Christmas is the time for rejoicing

giving thanks to the lord for His love

God knew that something must happen

He was saddened by a world filled with sin

So He sent down His beloved son, Jesus

Born in a manger, there was no room at the inn

The wise men saw a star in the heaven

Shining brightly they followed its light

The shepherds traveled far from their home land

Arriving at the stable one night

As they gazed at the babe in the manger

The Christ child, who would save the world from sin

They remembered the melodious angels singing

“Glory to God in the highest,

Peace on earth , good will toward men

Just in time for Christmas

      Thanks so much for commenting and sharing! I love writing Christmas poetry. I have about a dozen and I will be hubbing them as soon as possible.

      We were in Georgia in September-doing a Gospel music tour and took a couple of days to be tourists. Toured a plantation and ate in a cute little cafe -Yesterday Cafe. I think it was in Washington or Madison.
