Christmas Angel


Guarding, guiding ray of light
Such radiance and beauty
and oh so bright
Watch over the Christ child
All through the night
Keep Him safe
and free from fright

His mother is tired
Her journey was steep
given birth to a Babe
so now she must sleep

Others come forth
See the Babe in a manger
They mean Him no harm
there is no danger

Some lowly shepherds
From the hills they fled
They heard the news
Because an angel had said

News travels fast
If one reads the sky
Three wise men
Also came by

They followed the star
For they knew of the King
His birth is announced
As the Angels all sing

There is warmth and love
All around this place
A Mother and Child
such beauty and grace

Even the animals
who share their stable
Their manger provides
for Jesus a cradle

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
