Christmas Begins With Christ - Poem by Deidre Dixon

One clear and starry night a child was born
In a manger wrapped in swaddling clothes was he adorned
Kings came from afar bearing gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh
For this child who is the Messiah according to the revelation they had heard
“Hark! ” the herald angels did sing
But, many didn’t then and still don’t know that he is the King of Kings
From the time he was born, he was destined to die for our sins
Though he was without sin himself and hurt no one, many chose and still choose today to deny him
He is the reason for this season we celebrate
When this little one was born, he changed everyone’s possible fate
It is because of him that all who are alive still have a reason to live
He is the greatest gift of all gifts that anyone could give
For such a wonderful gift you might think there is nothing that could be given in return
There is a reciprocal gift, but it’s not something you can buy or earn
It is simply to receive what has been given, and that is the gift of eternal life
Many have tried to define the meaning of this season of giving called Christmas
But, this season of giving we know as Christmas begins with Christ
