Christmas a long time ago

Christmas a long time ago...

On a cold winters night as I sit in the barn and think of a Christmas a long time ago

Shuting my eyes back through the ages I go

And see the couple move forward on a donkey as white as the snow

Round the back of an Inn the man now did pause peering out through the darkness his way lit by a star

A slit of light appeared from under the door, a welcome sight for the two who had travelled so far

Relief floods his body as the nudge of his donkey urges him on

The words no room at the Inn are all but gone

The smell of sweet hay welcomes them in

And the process of birth soon starts to begin

He holds her hand and tenderly wipes her brow

Thinking God please don't leave us we need you now

Sensing his worry the animals gather around

As if their mere presence can calm him somehow

How will I raise him, look at this start

No room I could find him his heart did remark

Does this mean I've failed him, is this place fit for a king

Oh Lord please help me I'll do anything

The cry of his wife signals the birth of the holy one

And with hands that were shaking he reached for God's Son

His breath was now ragged torn away by the sight

Of a babe so perfect bathed in heavenly light

As he watched him lay in the manger that night

The lord gave him courage and broadened his sight

For the little babe Jesus was happy bundled down in the hay

Lulled to sleep by the churring of the lambs while they played

His faithful donkey kept watch by the door

As strangers dropped to their knees to worship the new Lord

Not concerned at all by his humble birth in the hay

The babe knew his heavenly father would supply thier needs for today

For the Lord assured Joseph it mattered not where your born

Or your status in life, whether you laugh weep or morn

For I'll always be with you, I'll always be true

And to show you my love I give this gift unto you

The gift of my son to share throughout time

He offers love and redemption, forgiving the sins of mankind

JLM.
