In a Manger

Few think of the shame
Mary and Joseph had to bear
from gossiping tongues
spreading rumors everywhere.

Filled with grace from above
Mary accepted God's will,
traveling afar on donkey's back
God's purpose to fulfill.

No room at the inn,
she was weary and worn,
and in a lowly manger
the Savior was born!

He came to save sinners
and at Christmas we recall
that Jesus the Messiah
is the greatest gift of all!

But it doesn't end there,
the Son of God lives on
long after Christmas Day
when decorations are gone!

Come let us adore Him,
the One who died for us...
the name above all names,
our Redeemer, Christ Jesus!

About the Poet
Christian since 1973, widowed in 2007, but by the divine appt. of God, I married a wonderful, godly widower in Oct. 2010. Three grown, married sons and eight grandchildren. My first love is Jesus who inspires my pen, for apart from Him I can do nothing! I desire to honor the Lord and edify readers thru poetry He inspires.
