A promise kept so very long ago
A baby boy would soon be born
And give the world unending hope
On that very first Christmas morn.
Wrapped in swaddling clothes
In a manger made of wood and hay
God gave us his one and only son
For us on that Christmas Day.
The lights that twinkled in the night
Were from the stars above
Angels told of Heaven’s abounding grace
And God’s unfailing love.
As shepherds watched their flocks
On that dark starry night
Angels touched their harps of shining gold
And sang of Heaven’s glorious light.
Let us not let our hearts forget the gift of amazing love
Given on that first Christmas Day.
Let us not forget the enduring Promise of Redemption
That began in a manger filled with hay.
Have a wonderful and blessed Christmas!
