A Christmas poem...


We see the baby laying there a meek and humble lamb

But that baby didn’t stay there

He grew up and became a man

From the stable to the cross was the reason He came to be

Not to remain a baby 

But to set the captives free

So tiny and so helpless as he lay in his mother’s arms

That baby grew up and conquered

The enemy he disarmed

Jesus left that little stable and he walked throughout the land

With a heart full of compassion

And healing in His hands

 The stable couldn’t hold him and neither could the grave

His mission was to come

To seek out and to save

So as we celebrate Christmas may we always understand 

Jesus is no longer a baby
He grew up and became a man
