A Christmas poem
December 28, 2007
Christ is born! come, glorify him
Along with wise men from afar.
In a manger there you’ll espy him,
As indicated by a star.
Shepherds in their shepherding
Have heard a host of angels sing,
And have come to seek the light
Upon this blessed, holy night.
“Glory be to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, good will toward men!
Glory be to God in the highest,
And on earth peace, good will toward men!”
So the angels came to earth
And did announce the Savior’s birth,
Making hills and fields to resound
With an angelic, heavenly sound.
Ring the bells of jubilation,
And let the earth and sea proclaim
That the Lord of all creation
Has taken on a human frame.
What was not has now occurred —
The incarnation of the Word.
He who was before time began
Has now become the Son of man.
