Rookie (Sept.22,1946 / Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario)



An angel named the baby
That was born in Bethlehem
An angel gave to Joseph
His directions for God’s plan.

An angel gave Zachariah
The name for his son too
As his wife Elizabeth marveled
Just at what our God would do

The angel of the Lord
The angel Gabriel
With some heaven sent directions
Had such wondrous news to tell

These women were God chosen
To birth Israeli sons
One annointed, John the Baptist
The other Salvation's Song

Emmanuel God with us
Hallelujah for that name
We sing the songs of Jesus
Salvation to proclaim

Our sins can be forgiven
When truly we repent
The grandest news on earth
From Heavens now been sent

We sing a Merry Christmas
We have a happy heart
We are, a redeemed people
O Lord How Great Thou Art!

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Go from me, summer friends, and tarry not:
I am no summer friend, but wintry cold,
A silly sheep benighted from the fold,
A sluggard with a thorn-choked garden plot.
