Christmas’ Promise

Post by Tom Watson » Thu Dec 20, 2007 4:45 pm

How wondrous it must have been
To hear the carols of angels then…
To have heard the hope and joy in their songs…
Announcing the birth of the corrector of our wrongs.

The arrival of a babe, under a bright star’s light.
Of our Lord, our King, our Savior who would lead us from night.
Oh to have been a shepherd with sheep under his care,
When the heavenly chorus erupted in songs, in the night’s cold air.

A child of light…a man of love…an infant in hay.
Man and God, born to turn our night into day…
To offer salvation from sin’s iniquity,
To bring our souls home, clean and free.

Promised by prophets, heralded by angels on high,
Every head will bow and angels will cry,
“Glory, glory, glory to our Lord on earth,
May all humanity receive the gift of His birth!”

Arriving in a manger of hay and wood,
Dieing on a hill of dirt and clay where the cross stood,
His gift fully unwrapped, He took our sins,
And gave us a way to return to God again.

His gift was one of love and grace,
A way to enter His prepared heavenly place…
How does one receive such a wonderful thing?
In humility, with a heart fully accepting!

Confess your sins, which is part of all of us,
Ask Him to remove them from your soul as dust,
Give Him your life and your heart!
Praise Him for the chance to make a new start.

As you finally give Him your life and love,
Much as He did for you when He came down from above,
Know that you need to show no concern for pride…
Remember, the babe in swaddling clothes, in a manger abides.


Merry Christmas,
Tom Watson

It is Christmas, 2008 and the promise is remembered as it was made, under a star, so bright...so far, so many years ago, that hope and peace can be gained with ease, with faith...in a babe in a manger of hay and wood... and given from a cross of wood and blood...
A joyous Christmas for everyone with wishes for a bright new year, and new life in His light.

Hi Tom I read this one again and what caught my attention this time was how you slipped into this poem the way to salvation. I loved it even more a second time.
