Christmas Poem- 2013

Christmas morning comes with its holy silence

The sons of earth and the sons of heaven bow in glad reverence

The world lays in its cold darkness with a heavy roar

Only the Son of God knows the stillness of the heavenly shore

 

Come to help your people know, Lord of Glory-Bright

The glories of God and heaven are only a blink of faith away

The gospel of Jesus now tells us how our souls need to finish from goin’ astray

Come and make your people know, Lord of Sabbath-Might

 

 

Could this really be the birth of our Savior, sin’s mortal blow?

Make haste to come to straw and hay, where majesty now dwells

Could this really be the birth of our King, salvation’s joyous glow?

Make haste to gaze on kingly brightness, where the water of heaven wells

 

Do not gaze too long upon the world and its hide-and-seek adornments

Jesus is here and has accomplished all the Father’s achievements

Jesus born for a manger and a cross whose grace stamps out all our sin

Jesus now all-glorious, victorious over the Fall and all, waits for us in the heavenly inn.
