A CHRISTMAS PRAYER - 2010

Christmas

"
   


The night was still, a child was born;
no cries were heard in the night.
No candle lit the stable walls,
yet there shown a light so bright.

For in the heav’ns, God lit a star,
as angels cried out with joy.
This is the birth so long foretold,
Christ Jesus was that baby boy.

And in the fields, so far away,
the shepherds gazed up in awe;
then gathered their flocks to follow
the wondrous light of the star.

And also came three wise men
to worship this King of all Kings.
Arriving they laid at his feet
the gifts they each did bring.

This Son of God, in a stable lay,
destined to save all mankind;
and conquer the bands of death,
heal the sick, give sight to the blind.

May each of us find the Savior’s light
and may peace surround the earth.
May the wonder of Christmas long ago
be found on this night of His birth.
