Short Poem, Timeless Celebration
12 Dec 2016
By: Juliandra Durkin
What a wonder, what a sight
The Son of God was born tonight
And to a woman so young and poor
Her name, sweet Mary,
Chosen before time to carry a King
He who came so selflessly
A life that started in a barn
Animals and shepherds
Witnessed the Savior’s first sounds.
Who would have known,
Who could have guessed,
That the Most High,
Just a child, would come like this?
Hail the Son, the Prince of Peace
Hail the Son of Righteousness
Hark, dear angels, come and see
Look in the manger at our newborn King.
He came tonight from His throne above
To live like us, to show His love
Reach out your hand and embrace Him now
For the King, this Babe is forever around.
