The Christ Of Christmas

And the Angel said to them, Do not
be afraid; for I bring you good news
which shall be for all people; for
today in the city of David there has
been born for you a Savior, who is
Christ the Lord. Luke 2:10, 11

Who was this Baby lowly born
In stable, hay and manger
That wise men three would gently warn
That He could be in danger

Who was this Child so meek and mild
What promise did He bring
How could we know that He would grow
To be our Lord and King

Mary knew within her heart
Her Baby boy was special
An Angel shared Godís plan in part
Why He made Her the vessel

Some shepherds came to glorify
This Baby of distinction
While Herod sought to plan and plot
To send Him to extinction

But God preserved His flesh and bone
And made this revelation
That Christ alone would just atone
And bring us to salvation

So in it all God leads and guides
He does the same today
His grace and mercy He provides
And Heís The Only Way

So lift your eyes and view the skies
And live and love and learn
Christ Saves and Keeps and Satisfies
Someday He Will Return !
