Christmas Poetry

This Christmas Day

It’s Christmas Day
The night is done
The Sky is bright
The child has come

The angels sang
Their joyous song
The shepherds came
Here they belong

The kings have seen
The brightest star
And they have traveled
From afar

It’s your turn now
What will you do
This little child
Has come for you

He came to teach
You how to live
He came tow you
How to give

He came to bring
God down to man
He came to prove
God’s loving plan

He came to die
For all your sins
He came to rise
To Heaven again

Will you accept
His sacrifice
Will you receive
Eternal life

The Christmas Day
Receive this Child
The Son of God

Christmas Poetry

It’s Christmas Day

It’s a day of great excitement
It’s a day of warmth and mirth
It’s a day of friends and family
It’s Christmas Day

It’s a day to exchange presents
It’s a day to have a feast
It’s a day share an eggnog
It’s Christmas Day

It’s a day we all year long for
It’s a day we hope for snow
It’s a day of favorite music
It’s Christmas Day

But more than all these wonderful things
More than almost anything
It’s a day that we all celebrate
The birthday of the King

For Jesus came to earth this day
In a lowly manger He did lay
He came to take our sins away
On this Christmas Day

Let’s all make sure we celebrate
The birthday of our Savior great
Who came to die in our place
On this Christmas Day

Christmas Poetry


Wouldn’t it have been amazing
To be there on that morn
When shepherds came to greet Him
The Savior that was born

Wouldn’t it have been amazing
To see the newborn babe
As wise men knelt before Him
Sleeping on the hay

Wonder of wonders
God’s only Son
Came down from heaven that day
We stand before Him
Lord of all time
We gratefully praise His name

Emmanuel, Emmanuel
God has come down to save
King of all Kings
Lord of all Lords
Came to us as a babe

Isn’t it truly amazing
That God loved us all so much
He gave His own Son to redeem us
His blood reaches each one of us

Isn’t it truly amazing
That on this blessed Christmas day
We can sing of our precious redeemer
With hearts full of grateful praise

Wonder of wonders
God’s only Son
Came down from heaven that day
We stand before Him
Lord of all time
We gratefully praise His name

Emmanuel, Emmanuel
God has come down to save
King of all Kings
Lord of all Lords
Came to us as a babe

Christmas poetry

The Great Payment

Have you ever thought it strange
That a baby in a manger
Would be the one who came to set men free
And have you ever stopped to think
About the fact that Heaven’s King
Left His throne to come and die for you and me

You may think it’s fable
He was born in lowly stable
But the story has withstood the test of time
And I thought that you should know
Why I’ve come to love Him so
For I want you to know this Lord of Life

You see, He changed my life
When I came to Him that time
That my life was spinning out of control
He forgave all of my sin
And He put His spirit in
Now He walks with me wherever I may go

Because this baby in the manger
Was no ordinary stranger
But the Son of God who came to earth that day
He shared the Father’s love
And brought healing from above
And He said He was the truth the life the way

His teaching brought division
Put the leaders in derision
They decided that He must be put to death
So they shouted crucify Him
On a cross they railed against Him
And He gave His life in one last gasp of breath

The final price was paid
For the sin of human race
And now we are set free forevermore
And it all began that day
In a stable filled with hay
And a baby who the blessed Mary bore.

This Christmas don’t forget
The great payment for our debt
That was made by that baby in the hay
He was born to die for me
And to set the captive free
Let us celebrate His birth this Christmas day

Christmas Poetry

A Little Hole in Heaven

A little hole in heaven
Opened up that Christmas day
When Jesus Son of God
Came to earth as a little babe

When He left heavens throne
He traveled through that hole
A host of angels followed
And one His story told

He told it to some shepherds
Out in the field that night
They trembled at the Angel
For he shone with heavenly light

He told them that a Savior
Was born in Bethlehem
The full angelic choir sang
The shepherds went to greet Him

Through that hole shone brilliant light
That surged from Jesus throne
It looked as if a giant star
Above the manger shone

Three kings from far off countries
Saw the brilliant star so bright
They set off on a journey
With gifts for the promised child

Yes a little hole in heaven
Opened up that Christmas night
Through it came our Savior
Coming down to give us Light

He shone the Light from heaven
So that we could see our sin
Then He died as our redeemer
If our hearts would now repent

Open up your heart to Jesus
On this blessed Christmas day
He came down from heaven’s glory
So he could light your way

Christmas Poetry

The Songs of Christmas

Hear the sounds of Christmas
Ringing in the air
Sounds that warm your heart
Meant for all to hear

Jingle Bells are jingling
Everywhere you go
Wishing Merry Christmas
To all who hear them toll

The First Noel has sounded
From choirs bringing cheer
Noel, Noel Born is the King
Is music to our ears

Precious songs of Christmas
Songs if warmth and cheer
Sung with all your heart
Every single year

And then a chorus fills the air
Hark the Herald Angels Sing
Voices of the highest praise
Glory to the newborn King

Oh, little town of Bethlehem
A town we’ve grown to love
Is visited by three wise men
Who saw he star above

Sing the tale of Christmas
With familiar lines
From children to our elders
Enjoying every rhyme

Away in lowly manger
No room was found for them
In hay they laid their baby
And there His tale begins

Silent Night, Holy Night
When Jesus Christ was born
The songs of His appearing
Are songs that bring us joy

Joy to the World
Jesus Christ has come
Born to die for all mankind
Praise the Holy One

Sing the songs of Christmas
Lift your praise above
Sing with all your heart
Songs we know and love
