Mary's Christmas
Viewed Last 24 Hours: 0 time

By Gary James Smith
Other Poems by Gary James Smith


Mary’s Christmas was seemingly small
Taking place in a cattle stall
She and Joseph and the Baby Christ
Finding shelter there that night

God’s appointed time had come
The virgin birth of heavens’ Son
Animals giving witness to
Their Creator in baby blue

Zacharias and Elizabeth, anxious to hear
Because His arrival was very near
Their son John would initiate the plan
Behold the Lamb, Behold the Lamb.

Wise men were following the star that night
That led them to the Light of Light
Herod the King necessitating the trip
That sent Joseph and Mary down to Egypt

God’s Deliverer, delivered from man
Fulfilling scripture for the great I Am
What a birthday, let’s light the candles
Put on the music, the Messiah by Handel

Creations’ celebration, the Christmas of Mary
Merry Christmas to all, to God be all Glory
Christ the Lord, true Meek and Mild
Behold Him the Lamb, the virgin born Child

Hallelujah! What a Saviour!

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
