Behold the child in the manger lies,
Nursed and cared for by His mother!
The passer-by might wonder why
Heís more special than aní other---
This virgin-born is the blessing sworn
To faithful Abraham by God,
Whose Seed would bless all lands on earth---
Itís the first advent of The Lord.

Behold the Lamb---The Son of Man
Baptized by John in water!
Came to His own though little known---
Was anointed by His Father;
In word and deed His life agreed
With the Holy Spiritís leading---
Redemptionís plan---the perfect Man,
To His Fatherís will acceding.

Behold the Man---The spotless Lamb
As He takes the sinnersí sentence!
The veil is torn, the rocks are shorn---
Through His death God grants repentance;
The grave canít hold His sinless soul---
By Godís Hand Heís resurrected---
Through faith in Him God pardons sin---
In Christ Jesus weíre accepted!

Behold the Lion, the Prince of Zion
Who is coming in His Kingdom!
There perfect peace and truth increase
In His reign of righteous wisdom.
ďGood will to menĒ will prosper then,
The peace of God fills all the earth;
We long and pray for that great day
Proclaimed by angels at His birth.

So Passer-by donít wonder why
Heís more special than aní other---
Godís only Son, The Blessed One
Is our Saviour, yet our Brother---
Heís the reason for the season,
Heís our great God and Lord and King---
Revelationís explanation
Forever hid and found in Him.

This poem definitely puts Christ at the centre of all things, and especially of Christmas. Thanks for sharing! Col.

May this season be special for you!

This is one of the most God honoring and Christ exalting poems I've ever read! The perfect rhyme pattern adds to its beauty. Good job and may God bless you for writing this.
