The star of Bethlehem


The star of Bethlehem

T'was in Bethlehem that Jesus was born
Raised in Jerusalem a million hearts he won

Preached Love, kindness and compassion
Traits that were missing then

Challenged the mighty Romans
Beliefs of his brethren

A sleight of hand and he could heal
A leper, sick child - even a corpse

Way ahead of his time
He was spat on, despised and cursed

A tear for you Oh, Sweet Jesus
A man that never was

Taking on the sins of others
Smiling as he passed

Every step of the way
They beat him black and blue

Golgotha will never see
A being like you

Called to the heavens
You had to move on

Jesus, Your star still shines
Long after you were gone

Poem of the Day

When biting Boreas, fell and doure,
Sharp shivers thro' the leafless bow'r;
When Phoebus gies a short-liv'd glow'r,
Far south the lift,
