The Birth Of Christ- Part One

One day, so long ago,
An angel to Mary did show.
Bringing news of great joy:
She was to have a baby boy.

'You shall call Him Jesus', the angel said.
'He will heal the sick and raise the dead.
He will be your Lord and Savior,
He'll put all people under God's favor.'

At this news, Mary was excited,
To be trusted with this task, she was delighted.
'A faithful mother I will be
To this child of God for all eternity.'

Her betrothed, Joseph, didn't know what to do.
Shall he stay, or tell her that they're through?
At the news of someone else's seed
In her womb, he thought 'What a grievous deed! '

An angel came to Him, and said everything's alright.
'For what is in Mary's womb is the seed of the God of Might.
From which will be born a redeemer glorious,
He will be put to death, then on the third day rise victorious.'

At this news Joseph was excited.
To be trusted with this task, he was delighted.
'A faithful father I will be
To this child of God for all eternity.'

Then came the time for the child to be born,
And start His ministry for this world forlorn.
Of finding a place they were not able,
So they had to go to a place much like a stable.

For three wise men, a star shown the way
To the place where the child was to be born that day.
With them they brought gifts so fair
To present to the child when they got there.

Strum the harp! Sound the horn!
For the King of kings and Lord of lords is born!
Sing! Every man, woman and child!
Born is the one who tames the hearts wild!

We celebrate His birth century after century.
We sing carols and put up a nativity.
May we never forget this holy birth,
One that was meant to save the Earth.
