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
