Gift Of Love

It was anything but silent
In Bethlehem that day
The streets were full of travelers
Who finally found their way

A census had been called for
And the rules were very clear
Every man had to go back to
The tribal village through the years

Joseph lived in Nazareth
With Mary, full with child
They had to travel many days
And cover many miles

When they arrived in Bethlehem
There was no place to stay
They found a shelter for the night
In a stable filled with hay

The child was born next morning
In a manger he was laid
It seemed a normal birth to them
As the looked down at the babe

Then shepherds came and told them
Of an angel choir that night
That had come to them alone
They were fearful of the sight

The shepherds shared the words
That the angels had proclaimed
Peace on earth was come today
And goodwill to all of man

Mary smiled at hearing
The story that they told
For she knew this special child
Was the Son of God foretold

As the morning sun was rising
The baby slept in hay
Now the Son of God had come
His gift of love was here to stay

Is your heart prepared for Jesus
Have you made some room for Him
He wants to share His love with you
Oh won’t you ask Him in
