The Gift (Poem)

God gave us the greatest gift of all, his love and salvation, and he started that with the birth of Jesus, which we celebrate at Christmas!

The Gift

THE GIFT

A star in the heavens did glow,
So Magi the way it would show,
In manger in a town did lay,
Holding bless’d child of God this day;

From the East and sheepfolds nearby,
Came witnesses to birth espy,
A child of heaven among men,
God, as man, so be it – Amen!

To die for our sins he must live,
Mortal he became – so believe!
The start of something so wondrous,
Through birth and His death, He would bless!
