Bethlehem's Babe
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

Bethlehem's Babe

Bethlehem's babe was virgin born
From the womb of Mary
Angels foretold that wondrous news
In the gospel story

Hark the herald angels sang
From the realms on high
As shepherds watched their flocks by night
Beneath the starlit sky

The earth was about to be blessed
By that Blessed One
Father, Son, and Holy Ghost
Hail Thee, three in one

Sin now had a conqueror
Christ the Lord was born
Jesus Christ the Lamb of God
Who wore that crown of thorns

Spotless, sinless Lamb was He
Deity's sacrifice
Who paid the ransom for our sin
And melts the heart of ice

Salvation's come! Immanuel!
God with us, Selah.
Worship Him my fellow believer
Stand in wonder and awe

Grace abounding to the sinner
Grace abundant and free
Put your trust in Jesus Christ
Experience, Liberty!

Christmas what a joyous occasion
The birth of earth's Creator
The One who walked upon His earth
And walked upon His water

Behold the babe of Bethlehem
Behold the Lamb of Glory
Behold the King of Israel
Behold Salvation's story

Behold Messiahs at the door
Will you let Him in?
Behold the Lamb for sinners slain
His blood atoned for sin.

About the Poet
I came to know the Lord as my personal Saviour in January of 1972. I was married on Oct 21,1966 to my wife Linda who also loves the Lord. We have ten children and now twenty-four grand children. In Aug 2012 we got the announcement of the birth of our first GREAT grand child (a baby girl). I was thrilled to find others of like precious faith and belief in Jesus Christ. Hallelujah! What a Savior! I am presently living in Champion, Alberta, Canada but we are originally from Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, Canada. That is where the poem Canadian Tribute to America was birthed. One Sunday as I walked across the city on my way to church I came to the top of a hill and looked across at Sault Ste. Marie, Michigan. After watching the events of the Sept 11 tragedy it was weighing on my heart and mind and the Lord gave me these words. We came to Calgary and when my oldest daughter saw this poem she said, �Dad, what�s this?� and I said a poem and she replied �Dad, that�s not a poem , that�s a song� and she then went to the piano and began to sing and play it. The result of which turned into a song entitled, A Canadian Tribute to America which she recorded on CD. garyjamessmith2005@yahoo.ca
