The Night Before Christmas

‘Twas the night before Christmas and Mary and Joe
Had traveled all day, and had no place to go.
The clerk at the inn said, "I'm sorry we're booked.
There must be some place you haven't looked."

‘Twas the night before Christmas. No one seemed to care,
That Joseph and Mary, even were there.
They found an old stable and Mary was glad
It seemed the best thing that the inn keeper had.

‘Twas the night before Christmas. At Gabriel's command,
The choir of heaven departed as planned.
"We'll make the announcements, and then while they gaze,
We'll sing our carols of worship and praise."

‘Twas the night before Christmas, the cattle were still.
The cry of that baby gave Mary a thrill.
The angels delivered their message to men.
They seemed so excited, they sang it again.

‘Twas the night before Christmas when God sent to earth,
The world's greatest present. It was Jesus' birth.
Wrapped in a blanket, and sleeping on hay,
God became man, on that first Christmas Day.

Peter Enns 2009

A little girl, who when asked why Jesus was called "the Word," answered simply, "Jesus is all God wanted to say to us."

Jesus is God's gift to the world. Accept Him and have a Merry Christmas and a blessed 2010!
