Jesus, My Calm ~

Lord, thank You for being,
my calm before the storm
for bringing me peace . . .
before it starts to form.

For, I never know,
when one I’ll go through
and when I do . . .
I want it to be with You.

Lord, thank You for going,
into the storm with me
there’s no one else
with whom I’d rather be.

For, only You can still,
my fears that fall and crest
and provide for me
an anchor on which to rest.

Lord, thank You for being,
my calm after the storm
for bringing me back to . . .
a place safe and warm!

~~~~~~~~

Luke 8:24

“And they came to him, and awoke him,
saying, Master, master, we perish.
Then he arose, and rebuked the wind
and the raging of the water:
and they ceased, and there was a calm”

All I Want for Christmas ~

CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann - Twelve Days of Chirstian - image Wikipedia Common

I don’t want a bird sitting in my tree,
or any number of any kind of dove
I don’t want hens inside of my house
all I need, is God’s gift of eternal love.

I don’t want anyone milking anything,
or any one leaping all around
I don’t want rings of any type
all I want, is to get my victory crown.

I don’t want anything that’s swimming,
no piping or drumming crowds
I don’t want anyone dancing anywhere
all I want, is to see Jesus in the clouds.

I don’t want any pears or turtles,
nothing that is french, gold or laying
I don’t want geese, swans or maids
nor ladies or lords in my home staying.

I don’t want anything this CHRISTmas,
I don’t want to cause you buying strife
all I want from you this year . . .
is for you to invite  Jesus into your life!

~~~~~~~~

Romans 6:23

“For the wages of sin is death;
but the gift of God is
eternal life
through Jesus Christ our Lord.”

Is There Room For Jesus ~

Is there room for Jesus,
in your home today . . .
will you welcome Him
into your life to stay?

Or will you be too busy,
in the CHRISTmas rush
that to His very presence
you’ll give Him the brush?

Is there room for Jesus,
in your heart this year
will you welcome Him
with gladness and cheer?

Or will you be too frazzled,
with all that you’ve to do
and have no space for Him
til the holidays are through?

Is there room for Jesus,
in your life today
or will you also . . .
have to send Him away!

~~~~~

Luke 2:7

“And she brought forth her firstborn son,
and wrapped him in swaddling clothes,
and laid him in a manger;
because there was no room
for them in the inn.”

CHRISTmas Morn Is Here ~

christmas-morn-is-here-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

CHRISTmas morn is here,
I hear the angels sing
rise up and come . . .
greet your newborn King.

Bow to your knees,
praise His mighty name
for, because of this Babe
nothing will be the same.

Oh, how Wonderful He is,
I hear the saints join in
a Savior to the world
forgiveness for our sin.

Love has come down,
from His heavenly place
hearken to the gift
of God’s mercy and grace.

Christmas morn is here,
sing ~ hallelujah ~ sing
open up your hearts . . .
to the truth Jesus brings!

My Gift To Jesus ~

my-gift-to-jesus-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

This Christmas . . .
after all the presents are opened,
I’m going to sneak away and give one more
I’m going to go into my prayer closet
and behind me I’m going to shut the door.

I’m going to pull away all the wrappings,
the frills and the gingerbread I hide behind
I’m going to unwrap my true wretched self
not the one that’s embellished in my mind.

I am going to take off all the ribbons,
rip off the tape and the pretty bows
I’m going to unmask my heart and soul
to a God ~ who already sees and knows.

I’m going to get down on my knees,
give Jesus the gift of my trust
I’m going to bundle myself in His love
and to His will I’m going to adjust.

I’m going to wrap myself up in Jesus,
I’m going to tie myself up with His grace
I’m going to bind myself to His Word
and everyday I’m going to seek His face!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 2:11

“And when they were come
into the house, they saw
the young child with Mary
his mother, and fell down,
and worshipped him: and
when they had opened
their treasures,
they presented unto him
gifts; gold, and
frankincense and myrrh.”

On This CHRISTmas Morn ~ A Re-Post ~

A promise to the world,
a child to be given
so many years foretold
so all could be forgiven.

Moonless night shining,
with the Morning Star
calling watchful shepherds
to come from afar.

Wise Men carry gifts,
meant for only a King
angels up in heaven
Glory ~ Glory ~ sing.

God became a man,
the Good News is born
begotten Son arrives
on this Christmas morn.

Our mighty God concedes,
to the wickedness of man
the Prince of Peace comes
to bridge the empty span.

Wonderful is His name,
Counselor to the meek
the Son was born of flesh
to give power to the weak.

Our everlasting Father,
knows our fallen state
so He sent His only Son
to save us from our fate.

A promise to the world,
our Lord and Savior is born
sing ~ Praises to His Glory ~
on this Christmas morn!

~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 9:6
King James Version

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is
given: and the government shall be upon his
shoulder: and his name shall be called
Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The
everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”

Away With the Manger ~ Re-posted ~

 Away with the manger,
no need for a bed
the birth of our Savor
is best left unsaid.

The unbeliever’s of the world,
look down from their nose
when the name of our Lord Jesus
on them we impose.

The masses are in agreement,
saying CHRISTmas is a mistake
but covetousness for the season
they will never forsake.

We love thee materialism,
we love thee so much
and to their credit card idols
they bow down and clutch.

Be clear to say happy holidays,
season greetings to you
but don’t mention the babes name
or you they may sue.

They bless all of their goodies,
their toys and their playthings
but want nothing to do with the gift
that the sweet baby Jesus – brings!

~~~~~~~~~~

Luke 2:12
King James Version

“And this shall be a sign unto you;
Ye shall find the babe wrapped
in swaddling clothes,

lying in a manger.

Feel The Joy ~

May this CHRISTmas,
find you joyful
may to the true reason
you remain hopeful.

May you not get caught,
in the season’s rush
but, instead let the joy
cause a peaceful hush.

May you be full of joy,
as you stop and ponder
how this time of year
is full of God’s wonder.

May you not lose your joy,
in all of the chaos
may the season’s madness
not make you lose focus.

May this CHRISTmas,
joy, be all you feel
may it cause in you
a delightful squeal!

Let’s Make Room For Jesus ~

making-room-for-jesus-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

Every year for Christmas,
we prepare for our guests
making sure they only see
our homes at their best.

We scrub and we scour,
room by room we go
making sure every space
has a sparkling glow.

We remove the clutter,
tidy up all of the mess
we dust everything in hopes
to pass the white glove test.

But, what about our hearts,
for Jesus, are they prepared
or in the holiday madness
have they become ensnared?

So, this year let’s first check,
to see if we have room
in our hearts for Jesus
and if not, let’s take a broom.

Let’s sweep away the junk,
clear out a perfect space
so Jesus can fill it up
with His love and grace.

Then let’s open up our homes,
and invite our guests in . . .
and maybe what they see in us
they too, will want within!

~~~~~~~~

One ~

One ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

One God,
one Creator
not one
is greater.

One heaven,
one earth
one Christ
one birth.

One Truth,
one Savior
one Spirit
God’s favor.

One King,
one Lamb
one Child
one I AM.

One Light,
one Life
the only Way
to end man’s strife!

also may be one in us:
that the world may believe
that thou hast sent me.”

CHRISTmas is Christ ~

what-christmas-is-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

CHIRSTmas is Christ,
no matter what they say
it’s all about Jesus
being born on this day.

It’s not about Santa,
or reindeer on the roof
it’s not about the clatter
of their little, tiny hoofs.

CHRISTmas is Christ,
the Babe, the Child, the Man
it’s all about the Savior
and God’s salvation plan.

It’s not about decorations,
trees or special lights
it’s not about the sales
or our out-of-town flights.

CHRISTmas is Christ,
the Lamb, our Hope, the Rock
it’s about the Price of Peace
and hearing Jesus knock.

It’s not about the presents,
its only about receiving one
for CHRISTmas is Christ
God’s gift to everyone!

~~~~~~~

Revelation 3:20

“Behold, I stand at the door,
and knock: if any man hear my
voice, and open the door,
I will come in to him,
and will sup with him,
and he with me.”

Getting Ready for CHRISTmas ~

I’m getting ready,
to celebrate CHRISTmas
I’m preparing my heart
to be for God a witness.

I’m going to be sharing,
the only true reason
why there even is  . . .
a CHRISTmas season.

I’m calling it CHRISTmas,
not a happy holiday
I’ll not be embarrassed
when Jesus’ name I say.

If I offend anyone,
Jesus I know I will not
for CHRISTmas is God’s gift
not the ones store bought.

I’m getting ready,
to celebrate CHRISTmas
for my Savior I will be . . .
a witness that is fearless!

Star Search ~

star-search-christian-poetry-by-deborah-ann

A single star shinning,
on a moonless night
God’s gift to the world
wrapped up in One Light.

Wise men make the journey,
from places east and far
in search for what they know
will be the Morning Star.

With gifts they travel,
to the town of Bethlehem
knowing there they’d find
the Babe, the Christ, the Lamb.

And so they came to be,
face to face with their King
knowing He was the Price
who eternal peace would bring.

One single, solitary star,
still beckons the world today
to follow the Light that leads . . .
to the Truth, Life and Way!

~~~~~~

John 8:12

“Then spake Jesus again unto them,
saying, I am the light of the world:

The Gift That Keeps Giving ~

You can give a gift,
without any misgiving
for, it’s the only one
that keeps on giving.

You needn’t spend,
one single dime
but, it will be a gift
that lasts a life-time.

It’s free for the giving,
so why don’t you try
giving the perfect gift
no one has to buy.

For, Jesus was born,
to save the lost
and for this to you
there is not a cost.

If you want to give a gift,
that just keeps giving
share the gift of salvation
among all who are living!

Every Day is CHRISTmas ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Every day is Christmas . . .
if the Gift you receive
every day is a present
if in the Gift you believe.

Every day you are offered,
the true Gift from above
every day you can decide
to accept God’s gift of love.

Every day brings new life,
if the Gift is in yours
every day is a miracle
if the Gift you’d explore.

Every day there is peace,
if you would ask the Gift in
for the Gift of eternal life . . .
will come and live within.

Every day is Christmas  . . .
if in Jesus  you believe
every day is a present
if God’s Gift you’d receive!

Seeking What’s Wise ~

Lord, may I be a seeker,
a follower of Your light
may I have the wisdom
like the Magi’s had that night.

May I travel the distance,
regardless of how far
may I be willing to go
to wherever You are.

May I have the resolve,
to follow where You lead
may I see to Your will
I must be willing to heed.

May I have the tenacity,
not to ever quit
may I be to Your ways
determined to submit.

May I have the fortitude,
to journey into what’s wise
may I  have the stamina
so Your path I’ll recognize.

Lord, may I always seek You,
like the Magi’s did that night
may I have the courage . . .
to follow after wisdom’s light!

The Greatest Gift of All ~

The Greastest Gift of All ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

The greatest gift of all . . .
isn’t found under the tree
nor wrapped in pretty paper
ribbons on it you won’t see.

It’s not very beautiful,
in fact, it’s even uncomely
it’s not deck-out or decorated
it’s actually rather homely.

It’s not seen on the mantle,
or inside an adorned stocking
in truth, it’s outward appearance
might even be to you shocking.

It’s not something you can buy,
or something you can give away
it’s not something people desire
most won’t give it the time of day.

The greatest gift of all,
is Jesus plain and clear
He is the Savior of the world
changing lives is His career.

Once you give your heart to Him,
His light will make you  glow
and the closer you get to Jesus . . .
His inner beauty you’ll come to know!

~~~~~~~~~~

Isaiah 53:2

“For he shall grow up before him as a tender plant,
and as a root out of a dry ground:
he hath no form nor comeliness;
and when we shall see him,
there is no beauty that we should desire him.”

Where’s Your Joy ~

Where Your Joy ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

Some people look for joy,
in the things money can buy
some people chase after . . .
that big pie, up in the sky.

Some toil and labor,
thinking joy is in their wealth
but, for all their hard work
it only destroys their health.

Some think fame and fortune,
will bring joy and elation
but, for all the recognition
it’s a fifteen-minute sensation.

Some think they will find,
joy in trying to be beautiful
but, for all their surgeries
their faces end up, unmovable.

Some people look for joy,
in all the wrong places
some know it only comes . . .
in the richness of God’s graces!

~~~~~~~~~

“For the kingdom of God
is not meat and drink;

CHRISTmas Joy ~

May the joy of the season,
you come to know . . .
may the hope Jesus brings
in your heart begin to grow.

May you be wrapped,
in the light of His love
may you find delight
in God’s Gift from above.

May this season,
bring to you happiness
may your heart be filled
with wonder and gladness.

May you accept openly,
the Gift of God’s grace
may the life of Jesus
in your heart you embrace.

May the joy of the season,
become real to you . . .
may the hope Jesus brings
start in you something new!

The Gift of Gentleness ~

CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ GENTLENESS

The gift of gentleness,
is the perfect present . . .
it’s reasonable and it’s fair
it’s always nice and pleasant.

It’s full of graciousness,
it has a kindly disposition
it’s courteous and it’s polite
it’s never an imposition.

It’s tender and it’s loving,
it’s caring and considerate
it’s even temper and it’s tranquil
it’s always just and moderate.

It’s passionate and fervent,
it’s easy-going and agreeable
it’s calming and reassuring
it’s sympathetic and likeable.

The gift of gentleness,
is one we all need to give
it’s the gift that says . . .
I’m sorry”  or “You I forgive!”

James 3:17

“But the wisdom that is from above is first pure,
 then peaceable, gentle, and easy to be intreated,
full of mercy and good fruits, without partiality,
and without hypocrisy.”

The Gift of Goodness ~

CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ GOODNESS ~

The gift of God’s goodness,
is ours to give away . . .
for, we must always be ready
to show kindness every day.

The simple gift of a smile,
may brighten another’s day
giving someone a compliment
can go a long, long way.

A quick little thank you,
might be all someone needs
any selfless act of charity
should be in all our deeds.

We don’t need a lot of money,
to spread around compassion
we just need a heart for God
Jesus the center, of our passion.

The gift of God’s goodness,
is ours to give away . . .
for we never know whose heart
our actions to God, will sway!

~~~~~~~~~~~~

Ephesians 4:32

“And be ye kind one to another, tenderhearted,
forgiving one another, even as God for
Christ’s sake hath forgiven you.”

The Gift of Self-Control ~

CHRISTian poetry by deborahann ~ Self_Control

May the gift of self-control,
be something, daily you present
may you show self-restraint
when others do things, to upset.

May you manage your temper,
when others have lost theirs
may you defuse the situation
whenever tensions, start to flare.

May you hold your own tongue,
when others are being rude
may your silence, be what alters
the unpleasantness, of their mood.

May you harness your pride,
when others ego’s are inflated
may your constraint cause . . .
their arrogance to be deflated.

May the gift of temperance,
you give to others everyday
may you have self-control . . .
no matter who comes your way!

~~~~~~~~~~~

2 Peter 1:5-6

“And beside this, giving all diligence,
add to your faith virtue; and to virtue knowledge;
And to knowledge temperance; and to temperance patience;

You Don’t Have to Be a Magi ~

You don’t have to be a Magi,
to follow the Christmas Star . . .
you don’t have to make a trip
or need to come from very far.

You don’t have to bring gifts,
of gold, frankincense or myrrh
it won’t cost you a thing . . .
for God’s mercy and favor.

You don’t have to be a shepherd,
to follow the Christmas Star . . .
you don’t have go anywhere
it will come to where you are.

For, Jesus is the Light shinning,
for all of the world to see . . .
He brings hope to the darkness
with His grace, He sets us free.

You don’t have to be a Magi,
or a shepherd coming from afar
you can accept the gift of Jesus . . .
today, right from wherever you are!

The True Light ~

The True Light ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann
The true light of the season,
isn’t wrapped around our trees
the true light of the season
isn’t hanging from our eaves.

The true light of the season,
isn’t put up, only once a year
the true light of the season
isn’t part of our Christmas gear.

The true light of the season,
never burns out or blows a fuse
the true light of the season
isn’t part of the holiday ruse.

The true light of the season,
cannot be put away or stored
for, the true light of the season
is the Babe, the Christ, our Lord.

Jesus, is the world’s light,
all darkness, He came to diffuse
and love, hope, peace and joy
in your life He wants to infuse!

~~~~~~~~~~

John 8:12

“Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying,
I am the light of the world:

What CHRISTmas Is ~

~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann ~Salvation to All- IBible Verse

CHRISTmas . . .

. . . is joy immeasurable,
the perfect gift of love . . .
it’s serenity and harmony
God’s grace sent from above

It’s forever life changing,
it makes all things new
it’s freeing and liberating
it restores and renews.

It’s hope for the future,
the wiping away of tears
it’s strong and powerful
the remedy,  for all fears.

It brings inner healing,
it’s like a refreshing rain
it soothes and eases
it’s the cure, for all pain.

It brings forgiveness,
deliverance from sin
it provides the only way
to have true peace within.

It’s comforting and calming,
the end  to worldly strife
it’s cleansing and purifying
it brings everlasting life.

It’s love immeasurable,
it’s heavenly elation
for the birth of Christ Jesus . . .
brings eternal salvation!

May the gift of love,

The Simple Things ~

I use to buy my dad, a nice tie,
my mom would get, a pretty blouse
and the kids were happy to receive
anything to do, with Mickey Mouse.

But, now a days I get a list,
that makes me feel like Santa Claus
and deviating from it . . .
is like breaking, the consumer laws.

What happen to the simple things,
like a good book or a fun board game
now if it isn’t something technical
it is considered to be dull and lame.

In the good-old days of yore,
giving gifts was a pleasure
but now it’s all about grabbing
“Black Fridays” biggest treasure.

I use to enjoy buying presents,
for all the people who I love
but now when I go to the mall
all I get, is pushed and shoved.

Shopping today is not the same,
it’s become a real nightmare
the only time I hear Christ’ name
is when people cuss and swear.

I used to buy my dad, a nice tie,
my mom would get, a pretty blouse
but this year ~ I’ve been  thinkin’ . . .
I might not even leave my house!

~~~~~~~~~~~

Matthew 2:11

“And when they were come into the house,
they saw the young child with Mary his mother,
and fell down, and worshipped him:
and when they had opened their treasures,

The Gift of Grace ~

The Gift of Grace ~ CHRISTian poetry by deborah ann

There’s only one gift,
that fits one and all . . .
it doesn’t matter your size
or if you’re big or small.

It’s the perfect gift,
it has a lifetime guarantee
it’s not something you’ll find
under your Christmas tree.

You cannot buy it in a store,
it’s not for auction or sale
you can’t find it on the web
or in ad’s sent in the mail.

You cannot send for it,
or ask it to be sent to you
it’s a gift where you’ll find
there’s nothing to buy or  to do.

There’s only one gift I know of,
that fit’s the whole human race
it’s a gift only Jesus can give . . .
and it’s called, His saving grace!

What Christmas Isn’t ~

Tis the season
to be jolly . . . .
but don’t get caught
in all the folly.

For, it’s not about,
jingle bells
or dashing off
to all the sales

It’s not about,
the office party
or if to Aunt Sally’s
we’ll be tardy.

It’s not about,
the food we buy
or if we’ll make
pecan or rhubarb pie.

It’s not about,
all the lights
or if Uncle Joe
will start a fight.

It’s not about,
Santa or his sleigh
or how much this year
he will weigh.

It’s not about,
the presents we get
or the gifts we buy
putting us into debt.

It’s about Jesus,
the virgin Babe born
so long ago
one early morn.

It’s about love,
shinning from afar
it’s about the promise
of Jacob’s Star.

It’s about His light,
His life, His way . . .
that ‘s why we celebrate
CHRISTmas day!

What if There Was No CHRISTmas ~

Christmas Chaos byJeff Boriss free photo #2242

What if there was no CHRISTmas,
no Babe lying in the manger
what if the Savior wasn’t born
to heal the world’s hurt and anger?

There would be no Good Friday,
no Palm Sunday or Resurrection Day
there would be no souls to show
the Truth, the Light or the Way.

What if there was no CHRISTmas,
no freedom from our strife
no hope or any anticipation
of having a blissful eternal life?

There would be no everlasting joy,
no chance of a never-ending love
there would be no glorious meeting
with our Savior one day above.

What if there was no CHRISTmas,
no trust, no faith, no peace
no virgin birth, no Immanuel
so our pain and tears would cease?

There would be no Prince of Life,
no eternal Lord and King
there would be no motive
for the CHRISTmas songs we sing.

What if Jesus wasn’t born,
on CHRISTmas Day
what then would be the reason
to even celebrate today?

Like Wise Men ~

Star used with permission Creation Swap

This Christmas . . .

Let us be as the Wise Men,
who came from afar
let us each search for God
right here, where we are.

He’ll lead us with His Word,
His Spirit will show us the way
just as the star led the Wise Men
to baby Jesus, Christmas day.

Let’s give our hearts to Jesus,
like Wise Men, offer up our praise
as we worship and adore Him
let our treasures, to Him be raised.

Let’s surrender to Him our life,
give Jesus everything we hold
our worldly sacrifices for Him
are more precious than any gold.

Let’s bring to Him our prayers,
our hopes, plans and dreams
let the aroma of frankincense
rise up to the King, who redeems.

Let’s give Him all our pain,
heartache, grief and suffering
let the fragrance of  myrrh
be our thankful offering.

Let us be as the Wise Men,
who came from afar . . .
let us give unto Jesus
all we have ~ all we are!

There is no real price,

that everyone it fits.

It’s bundled up and swaddled,

wrapped up so ever tightly
is God’s love for you to embrace.

so not to suffer reproof.

Don’t want to offend,

and for those who do . . .

Don’t sing of a Holy Infant,
or of a Virgin’s Birth
don’t tell us of a Savior
who came to this earth.

We don’t want to hear it,
don’t push it in our face
this gift that you call . . .

Silence the Children,
silence the Pure Light
silence the Christ Jesus

Finding Christ in CHRISTmas ~

 

I can’t find Christ in CHRISTmas,
it’s like they erased away His name
replacing Him with some greetings
that just don’t mean the same.

Happy Holidays,
is just too bland and generic
although it’s sounds pleasant
it doesn’t capture the true spirit.

Season Greetings,
doesn’t express or say anything
about the life-saving reason
the season we are celebrating.

Merry Xmas,
can it get any worse?
Yet, people can say Jesus Christ
when they swear and curse.

I can’t find Christ in CHRISTmas,
the world continues to resist
the Savior born on CHRISTmas
it’s as if He doesn’t even exist!

He’s got an escape plot
He’s gonna find out

He sees you when you’ve sinned,
He knows when you’ve confessed
He knows when you’ve been guilty or not
so believe in Him – for your own sake.

So, you better watch out,
you better not lie
you better not doubt
I’m telling you why.

Jesus, is coming again . . .

Little lost sheep,
little Satan’s charms
baa-moot-moot
and don’t fall in his arms.

Jesus, is coming again . . .

Little Satan’s toy’s,
that follow and do
lusty, greedy,
and gluttonous too.

Jesus, is coming again . . .

Those who play in Satan’s band,
will have a fiery festivity
they’re gonna play his sinful gig
in the depth of hell’s captivity.

Oh, you better watch out,
you better not lie
you better not doubt
I’m telling you why.

Jesus, is coming . . .

A Free Gift ~

There is a CHRISTmas gift,
that needs not be wrapped

won’t leave you strapped.

You can’t find it at the mall,
nor see it on TV
there’s no place on-line
where this gift you’ll see.

It’s available all year through,
not just at CHRISTmas time
and the best thing about it
it won’t cost you a dime.

It’s a gift undeserving,
you could never earn it
but when you try it on
it will be the perfect fit.

If you’d like this gift,
ask Jesus into your life
confess to Him your sins
put an end to your strife.

For God has given to you,
the gift of eternal grace

On This Christmas Morn ~

A promise to the world,
a child to be given
so many years foretold
so all could be forgiven.

Moonless night shining,
with the Morning Star
calling watchful shepherds
to come from afar.

Wise Men carry gifts,
meant for only a King
angels up in heaven
Glory ~ Glory ~ sing.

God became a man,
the Good News is born
begotten Son arrives
on this Christmas morn.

Our mighty God concedes,
to the wickedness of man
the Prince of Peace comes
to bridge the empty span.

Wonderful is His name,
Counselor to the meek
the Son was born of flesh
to give power to the weak.

Our everlasting Father,
knows our fallen state
so He sent His only Son
to save us from our fate.

A promise to the world,
our Lord and Savior is born
sing ~ Praises to His Glory ~
on this Christmas morn.

Isaiah 9:6
King James Version

“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is
given: and the government shall be upon his
shoulder: and his name shall be called
Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The
everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
