A Christmas Poem for 2010

Luke 2:8–18 (ESV) “And in the same region there were shepherds out in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9 And an angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them, and they were filled with fear. 10 And the angel said to them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. 11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. 12 And this will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in swaddling cloths and lying in a manger.” 13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying, 14 “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace among those with whom he is pleased!” 15 When the angels went away from them into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, “Let us go over to Bethlehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has made known to us.” 16 And they went with haste and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby lying in a manger. 17 And when they saw it, they made known the saying that had been told them concerning this child. 18 And all who heard it wondered at what the shepherds told them.”



The angel did say;

‘Tis Christ – the Lord

is born this day

Low in the manger’s trough He lay

This – I say, is Christmas



The angels sang;

“Has come to earth”

the heavens rang

On Him all human hopes do hang

This – I say, is Christmas



To all the world

God’s banner – love

now flies unfurled

God’s wrath on Him will yet be hurled

This – I say, is Christmas



To see Him there

Both God and man

Heav’n’s sweetest share

The One whom all our sins will bear

This – I say is Christmas



Oh Praise His name!

Our Substitute

Who’ll take our shame

The Babe, at Calvary’s cross takes aim

This – I say is Christmas
