Christmas is the time to tell the story!

Updated on December 15, 2013

Baby Jesus


Christmas poem

Christmas is the time

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

      Beautiful, a lovely poem to remind us about the miracle of Christmas and how Jesus is the biggest gift we will ever get for Christmas, the gift of life.
