On The Night That Christ Was Born
The hills were brushed with stardust as
The angels came to earth,
And shepherds left the misty fields
On hearing of His birth.
They journeyed to the stable where
The everlasting light
That touched the souls of men with life
Shone through the dark of night.
There nestled in sweet Mary's arms,
The dear Lord Jesus lay,
All wrapped in beggar's rags, asleep,
His cradle filled with hay.
The Star of David shines at last
His light from Bethlehem,
As shepherds pray and angels sing
And great kings honor Him!
Kate Watkins Furman
The angel said to them, "Do not be afraid; forbehold,
I proclaim to you good news of great JOY that will be
for all the people.'' WIhen the angel went away from
them to Heaven, the shepherds said to one another,
"Let us go , then, to Bethlehem to see this thing that has
taken place, which the Lord has made known to us·"
Luke 2: 10,15
Pray daily at 12 noon that the love of God
shall abound in our hearts eternally.
