Christmas Eve

This is the night
Of undying love,
Shining on us
From a star up above.
It's leading us, guiding us,
Showing the way
To the joy and the wonder
Of that first Christmas Day.
Look up to the skies
This one night of the year
And to believers
The angels appear.
The carols they sang
On this night long ago,
Still echo faintly
To those in the know.

At midnight the church bells
Ring out o'er the earth
With wonder and joy
In the dear Saviors birth.
The lonely shepherd
With a finely tuned ear,
Will still hear the message
And cower with fear.
The beasts of the fields
Are blessed in the glow.
They gave up their shelter
For Him long ago.
Oh listen and see;
If you truly believe,
You'll find the pure joy
Of that first Christmas Eve.

Thank you, I really loved this.
I know it hasn't seemed much like much like Christmas for me this year,
but its still amazing to see the difference in how I view Christmas from how those around me who don't believe, view it.

This was written wonderfully and is inspiring

Happy Celebration on Jesus' birth to you and yours!

Always, Alyssa

A delightful piece and a great reminder of Christ being born among us, for the purpose of our Salvation; wonderfully written. --Joe

PS Perhaps you would enjoy my poem "Poem: The Cross, Stark and Still" which has paralleling themes.

Logic, when applied to people, fails miserably! --Joseph J. Breunig 3rd

Another fine poem from 'Joyce' and it comes with a message to believers. "Oh listen and see - if you truly believe." I believe.
