A Child Is Born (Christmas Poem)


A child is born
The King has come to us this day,
To us this day
He's born to take our sins away,
And the gift God has bestowed
Shall live eternally,
And will guide us with his light
That will shine for you and me.
The Son of God
And Christ the holy child has come,
This holy child
Who is so pure and undefiled.

The Saviour has come
The Saviour is here,
With a blessing from above
To bring hope and to dispel fear,
The eternal light
And the eternal flame,
Will burn for evermore
And shine in Jesu's name.

A child is born
And born to bring us peace on earth,
Peace on this earth
We celebrate this wondrous birth,
In the town of Bethlehem
The choir of angels sing,
As the wise men from afar
Offer gifts unto the King.
The holy Son
Now lies within a stable bare,
A stable bare
Above a star is shining where.

The Saviour has come
The Saviour is here,
With a blessing from above
To bring hope and to dispel fear,
The eternal light
And the eternal flame,
Will burn for evermore
And shine in Jesu's name.

    This is where it all started for me. 'A child is born' was my first published work and appeared in the local church magazine in January 2001. It received a positive reaction from those who read it and it gave me the encouragement to write poetry. I do hope that you all enjoy it. Happy Christmas PH (Report) Reply
