What Is Christmas?


Christmas is that hamlet small,
That offered haven to them all
That Judean night,
There came a light
To mend man's plight. 

Christmas is that manger worn
Wherein the Son of God lay born
For you and me
So patiently
'Mid poverty. 

Christmas is that shining star
That summoned magi from afar
Adore this King
Gifts to Him bring
While angels sing.

Christmas is that warming glow
That in man's heart begins to grow
Till we're full of
That gift of Love
From God above.

Poem of the Day

poet Robert Burns

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,
