The True Christmas

I was going through some old poems I had written years ago and found this one.

The Christmas season is upon us

We’re all so cheerful and gay.

But too many people have forgotten

The  real meaning of Christmas Day.

Long ago in Bethlehem

A child in a manger lay

For God sent Him to earth

To show mankind the way.

He was born in a lonely manger

There was no room at the inn

He was sent by God in Heaven

To pay the price for our sins.

The wise men came that night

Sharing gifts from lands afar

To see the king that was a born to them

For they had seen the star.

The glory of the Lord came down

While angels sang His praise.

So when you think of Christmas cheer

Remember that first Christmas Day.
