The Animals of Christmas


The animals of Christmas were there for Christ it's true,
Let me tell about each one, in this poem for you;
First was the donkey who carried Mary, to the city,
And joseph walked beside, and carrying the Baby to be.

There was the Lambs, Who were with the shepherds on the hill,
As they cared for them, they came of fear and was still;
They saw the Angel who told of Christ, born this Holy night,
Then the watched and heard the angels sing, what a glorious sight.

Another important animal was the camels who came from afar,
Guiding those Wisemen, Following the special star;
They brought those wisemen with their gifts for the king,
Telling joseph and Mary, myrrh, frankincense and gold we bring.

There would have been the cattle, in the stable there,
Such lowly animals, would have given milk to share;
And being lowly and humble animals, is what Jesus was to us.
Because He came to give life, So He died upon the cross.
