Born In A Manger


Over two thousand years ago Godís Son came down to earth.
People came from miles around when they heard about his birth.

He was born of a virgin on that quiet, holy night.
He came here fully knowing what Godís plan was for His life.

He was born in a stable for there was no room at the inn.
What a humble way for a Kingís life to begin.

Mary wrapped as best she could, and in a manger He was laid.
Wise Men came from the East to bring presents to the babe.

The angels appeared before the shepherds as they were tending to their sheep.
They told them how to find this Savior who was in the manger fast asleep.

Everyone followed the bright star to the place where the baby lay.
The star shone down upon Him as He lay there in the hay.

So the true meaning of Christmas goes back to that first night.
When a baby was born in a manger under a star that shone so bright.

You captured the true meaning of Christmas. Well done.

I thought this would make a wonderful poem to read on Christmas Eve with young children. You put the story so simple into a way that children would understand too.

This is a wonderful poem. I am always amazed with the flow of words for poets. This peice can be used to bless in many settings. Thanks for your submission. Don't change a thing. P.K.

Very good, it is as though it flowed without trying to get the words to rhyme they just did. Good Job!
