Merry Christmas

Christmas is so commercialized. We see decorated trees, gift wrapped packages, parties, cookies, goodies and plenty of greed. But, Christmas is about so much more than that.

As we ponder the true meaning of this Christmas Season, it is my prayer that everyone understand why we should celebrate this date. Sure, Jesus wasn’t really born in December — historians put in somewhere around October, but December 25th is the day set aside for us to remember.

I wrote a poem back in 2004 that captures that reason.

I hope you enjoy.

WHEN GOD CAME DOWN

Mary wrapped her little child; in cloth she swaddled him, and breathed the sweetness of his breath, and kissed his cheek again.

Oh baby Jesus on the hay, how sweet the lullaby that Mary sang to him the night; when God came down to die.

Angels sang, announced His birth. Sent to the Shepherd men; Come see the Christ Child that has come, to take away your sin.

O, Baby Jesus, on the hay, how sweet the lullaby that Mary sang to him the night, when God came down to die.

The fullness of the Deity became the Holy Child; Fulfilling God’s Own prophecy to those that sin defiled.

For God so loved, He sent His Son to earth that Christmas Day; His purpose was to take our place and for our sin to pay.

O, Baby Jesus, on the hay, how sweet the lullaby that Mary sang to him the night, when God came down to die.

Rejoice, O man, for God has come. Lift up your weary soul. The Babe that sleeps so peacefully; Redemption’s plan unfolds.

And as the words were prophesied of pain and suffering; The cross foreshadowed Bethlehem upon the new born King.

Oh Baby Jesus on the hay, how sweet the lullaby that Mary sang to Him the night, when God came down to die.
