The birth of Jesus Christ was on this wise,
As Mary espoused to Joseph in God's eyes;
She was with child from the Holy Spirit,
For the Heavenly Kingdom He'd inherit;
Not willing to make her a public ridicule,
Joseph did not want her to look like a fool;
But as he slept an angel come in a dream,
Told him not to worry for not as it seem;
A good of time as any for him in his life,
Just taking Mary in marriage for his wife;
So a son was born, Jesus was His name,
To save His people from sin and shame.
We are born with a negative spirit and sin,
Meaning we do not have the trust within;
For that is something that we have to earn,
It is not just given away as you will learn;
When Adam committed that dreadful act,
Guilt replaced trust as a matter of fact;
That is why we confess to prove our belief,
As blessings from God will give us a relief.
