The story of the child in the Manger


ages ago and a two thousands years past, the child was born
in the manger the, Emmanuel who lighted the the dark
sky of hope to a brighten new ages of life, a new beginning of
life everlasting

in a solemn desert where only a shelter of animals Mary and
Joseph tarry, for there was no room to them to lay, the baby
Jesus was there to stay, born witness by the angel, adored by
the magi and rejoice by the shepherds who stay with them
in the cottage of charity

silent felt the whole Bethlehem, while the whole Judah, Herod
got crazy for the three wise kings Melchor, Baltazar and
Gaspar brought gifts to offer and honor the king of kings,
who according to the prophecy will reign the world and the
universe, a dominion of all ages, and He will be seated at the
right side of the Father in heaven, till eternity

the only begotten of the Father, the promise of the messiah as
foretold by the prophets, the fulfillment of the covenant, the
consoler of the affected, the giver of mercy and the brother
to all mankind, who will live with us, until beyond this world

as the the angels in heaven and in the earth rejoice, singing with
there an endless hymn of praise, the universe display the glory
of God in our hearts, and live our memories to the generation
to come, that the Lord thy God is the God for all mankind

our unending thanks echo in the distance land, transcends beyond
ages, race, creed, for the mighty Lord, shower his blessing to all,
let our soul shout for joy and let our spirit thanks the giver of life,
for Jesus is with us who was born in a manger

' let the spirit of the child Jesus in the manger live in our HEARTS' '

Oh day of fire and sun,
Pure as a naked flame,
Blue sea, blue sky and dun
Sands where he spoke my name;

That the spirit flew off free,
