The Lamb


The children dressed up for Christmas
In their festive holiday wear
And acted like they were the ones
Who worshipped Jesus there.
The "Future Farmers" got involved
And furnished all the bleating sheep
That grazed there in the pastures green
As shepherds watched their keep.
The angels gathered overhead
In gold and silver tinseled wings
And when Mary came on the stage
They all began to sing.
Forgotten in the Christmas rush,
Back stage, a lowly shepherd boy
Cried out with a blood curdling scream
That all became annoyed ...

    "Teacher! Teacher! Can you help me?
Please, Don't get mad!  Please, understand ...
      I have looked for him everywhere ...
           Somehow, I Lost the Lamb!"

From expressions on teacher's face,
Somewhat upset and filled with rage,
I could tell this was not the plan
As children ran off stage.
Oh, everything became chaos
With children running everywhere
While future farmers gathered sheep
And penned them up with care.
One sheep remained a mystery
That it seemed none on Earth could find
Until the girl who played Mary
Restored some peace of mind.
Yes, the audience was puzzled
As on the little girl they gazed
While out of the wooden manger
A little lamb was raised ...

    "Teacher! Teacher! Please forgive me?
Please, Don't get mad!  Please, understand ...
       I had placed him in the manger ...
          And now, Behold the Lamb!"

beautiful, Bob!! Absolutely a keeper and yet, no, not that, it's a sharer. May I? Please e-mail me your answer.

behold the Lamb...the Christmas gift for all

Whether on the shoal or on the shore,
I'll seek the lighthouse evermore.

Merry Christmas Everyone and Thank you.

I have been a Sunday School teacher for a number of years and have presented many Christmas plays of which I am proud to announce that none have turned out how I have planned ... but with children it seems everything always ends up perfect in the eyes of their beholders.  Thanks again for your kind words.
