The Son in the Manger

The Son in the Manger

A Poem by Melinda McQueen

The Son in the Manger

 

The star shone big and bright

Against a dark night.

Shining the way

To the baby dreaming in the hay.

 

The Truth come to be,

         The promise received.

The perfect sacrifice--

The Son in the manger ever alive.

 

Filled with hope

Were all made known.

The Healer come to atone

For all the wrong.

 

As the starlight shed upon His face,

So did the light of His marvelous grace.

The love of God dwelling in a baby--

The Son in the manager dreaming of peace.

 

Angels gathered in heavenly realms,

In celebration of Him.

All the world made joyous

By the gift wondrous.

 

Love shone big and bright

For all time.

Christ the Savior--

The Son in the manger.
