I wrote this as a Christmas poem almost 13 years ago; A Hearlding to the World about the new born King of Kings….

****************************************************
  "A Night In The Manger"

“Lo; this day, a King is born in Bethlehem,
A Savior to bear the burdens of our sins.
Born in a manger; laid upon the hay.
For in the Inn, there was no room to stay.

A king to comfort the poor,
To strengthen the weak ever more.
Angels greet shepherds with the cry;
“Glory to God in the Highest!!!”

In the East, a Star doth shine,
Guiding King’s of the Orient; most fine;
Onward to Bethlehem, to worship a new child King.
From Heaven’s multitude, great tidings ring.

The baby; Jesus, sleeps amongst the flock,
The mystries of Ages, He shall unlock.
The Son of God is “Thee”
King forever shall he be.
