Way Off In A Manger

Way off in a manger
Our baby Jesus was born
Virgin Mary gave us His birth
A midst the hay and rags so torn

The bright shining star
Lead the wise men there
They traveled many miles
To see the baby luing there

They brought so many gifts
Though He was too young to understand
Never knowing the future
Someday He must die for the love of man

Each day He grew up
He spread the word of God
How we should love one another
As well as don't spare the rod

He later died upon that cross
To save the likes of me and you
So we could spread the word of love
The greatest love of all this is true

He forseen the future
For He was Gods only son
Way beyond any other prophits
There where Few thought He was a con

When He died upon that cross
Many thought he had let them down
Until they rolled away that rock
And there was no body to be found

We now celebrate Christmas
As the time of His birth
And celebrate the time He was here
For all He did for us while here on earth

So when you kneel to pray tonight
Try to remember all that He gave
From the time of His birth
Up until He was put in that grave

Should you meet a total stranger
Treat them with respect and love
For love is our greatest present
Between us and our God above

Be willing to help your fellow man
And always pass along your love
The more you give the more you receive
There's an unlimited supply from God above

May God Bless You

Poem of the Day

poet Percy Bysshe Shelley

O World! O Life! O Time!
On whose last steps I climb,
Trembling at that where I had stood before;
When will return the glory of your prime?
No more -Oh, never more!
