Christmas is the time we celebrate our saviors birth

When he left his home in Heaven to live here on earth

He was Just a new born baby, no room at the inn

Destined to give his life to save us all from sin.

An angel of the Lord appeared here on earth that night

Speaking to the shepherds, filling them with fright

Do not be afraid, I bring you news filled with joy

For tonight in the city of David, is born a tiny baby boy

Suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host

Praising God and saying, Glory to God in the highest,

and on earth peace, good will toward men (KJV Luke 20:13,14)

The wise men from the east were in awe of the sight

when they saw the Christ Child’s  star, shining so bright

They traveled on along the way, searching night and day

Bringing gifts for the babe, born in a manger filled with hay

I love the story of how they all traveled far

The shepherds from the fields, wise men following a star

To worship the Christ child, and shower him with love

Praise God our Father for sending His Son from above
