Santa Came To Bethlehem
~Marge Tindal~ 1999


Santa came to Bethlehem,
following a star that rose.
He was merely curious,
as it outshined Rudolph's nose.

As he drew near
to the stable roof,
the reindeer were prancing
on each little hoof.

Down from the sleigh
he quickly came ...
greeted by three wise men
calling his name.

He wanted to know
what gifts they brought.
This was his job,
or so he thought !

Entering the stable
he stopped in wonder ...
at the babe lying in manger
in deepest of slumber.

Santa fell to his knees
in prayer of blessings.
He knew who this was ...
there was no more guessing.

He removed his hat,
bowed his balding head ...
paid homage to the babe
in the manger bed.

The babe awoke
and smiled his smile.
Of dimpled cheek
this blessed child.

Santa arose
from bended knee
said, 'This babe, this babe
I just had to see.'

All the gifts that
I might bring
pale in comparison
to peace bells as they ring.

He jumped in his sleigh,
new joy as he departed.
Away he flew
to finish what he started.

But, I heard him exclaim
as he flew out of sight ...
'Happy Birthday Jesus,
there's great joy tonight !'

Thank you, RainbowGirl -
Just a gentle reminder of
the birthday we celebrate.
He sometimes gets lost in the shuffle
and shouldn't.
Love to you my dear.

Oh, Elizabeth, my friend -
The very thought that you will share it with your grandchildren makes this lady all

Thank you, my dear lady.
You've made my day.

WhiteDove -
I'm really glad that you found this on Christmas day.

Thank you for the lovely compliment.
I was inspired by a card I received
of Santa kneeling at the manager ...
I believe it should be given to every
child so that they learn as much about
Jesus as they do about Santa.
Love to you this wonderful day.

I absolutely love it, Marge! Merry Christmas!

 Nail to the mast her holy flag,
Set every threadbare sail-
And give her to the god of storms,
The lightning and the gale!
