The First Gift of Christmas

By Beth Taylor

The angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them. Luke 2:9

The heavens glowed
With a brilliant light
As angels sang that first
Christmas Night.

A child is born!
The angels proclaimed.
To a lowly
Couple in Bethlehem!

He lies in a stable with a
Manger for His bed,
Wrapped in swaddling clothes
And hay for His head.

Come and worship the
One From God,
Prince of Peace,
And the Living Word.

He came as a babe
From the Father above
To forgive our sins,
And bring us His love.

Merry Christmas and God bless.
Beth and Horace Taylor
