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 His throne above
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

That hole let out the 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

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

What Christmas Means to Me

When I sit back and look at Christmas
And all that it means to me
I am filled with awe and wonder
At the lessons that this day brings

As a babe in a manger, He showed me
That humility is first in my life
There is nothing more important
Then putting others first every time

Mary and Joseph knew all things
But they did not speak a word
His teaches me I must just show Him
And let the Spirit do the work

The star up above that announced Him
Taught me that I must be a light
If I shine bright enough to others
They will come to His manger side

I innkeeper who had no room
Shows there are many who will not take time
To recognize Jesus is knocking
At the door of their heart and mind

This gives me a reason to show them
The place in my heart He holds
And perhaps they will just make room
For the one who can make them whole 

The shepherds who came to that manger
Saw a baby like any other child
He did not appear to be a Savior
But someone whose meek and mild

His teaches me I should not stand out
Like a bull in a China shop
But should go about my daily chores
Let my work tell His story of Hope

Yes, the lessons we learn from Christmas
Are as vast as the sand and the sea
I will go out and show the whole world
Just what Christmas means to me

I Can’t Imagine

I can’t imagine what went through the shepherd’s mind that night
When the angel of the Lord appeared, bringing brilliant light
I can’t imagine what they heard when those angels start to sing
Peace on earth and Hallelujah, glory to the newborn king

I can’t imagine what the wisemen thought from distance far
When they looked up in the sky and saw that brilliant star
I can’t imagine as they journeyed to a foreign land
To see the King of Kings as the prophecy had said

I can’t imagine Joseph’s thoughts a Mary was in pain
Bringing forth the baby that would be the great I AM
I can’t imagine Mary holding Jesus as a babe
And singing lullaby’s to Him as He lay in the hay

I can’t imagine Jesus before the Father on that day
Saying I will go to earth and become a little babe
I can’t imagine walking with Him as He taught the crowds
And being there when he scolded all the Pharisees aloud

I can’t imagine all the pain he felt that fateful night
As they beat Him and they whipped Him into a frightful sight
I can’t imagine seeing Him just hanging on a cross
I probably would think that this is such a loss

I can’t imagine when one day I’ll see Him in the clouds
As He returns to take us home and give to us our crowns
I can’t imagine what a time that we will have in heaven
Praising Him and joining saints forever and forever.

What A Mystery

What if I had a million stars to put in place?
What if I knew them all and called them all by name? 
I’d pick a special one to put up in the sky
Over the place where soon the Savior would arrive

What if the angels came to me with wondrous praise?
What if they asked me who should hear the news they gave?
I’d pick the ones who would be humble and obey
Shepherds out in the field who kept watch every day

CHORUS
Oh, what a mystery. Oh, what great love
The Son of God left His throne above
Oh, what compassion on sinners like me
He left His royal throne to die for me

What if the shepherds brough their flocks to see the King?
What if three wise men travelled far their gifts to bring?
There in a manger lay the Savior of the world
Today He’s just a babe but He’ll be Lord of Lords

CHORUS

BRIDGE
What if He had not come?  I’d still be lost.
No hope to look for, all peace is gone
Joy would be sorrow, True love unknown
If Jesus had not come this Christmas morn

CHORUS

The Witness of Christmas

 Hope that fills the darkness
 Love for all to see
 Peace to calm the nations
 Joy abundantly
  
 Attributes of Christmas
 Shine throughout the year
 Giving light to others
 Filling all with cheer
  
 Let your light so shine
 That others come to know
 The love of Christ our Savior
 Has come to earth below
  
 We must be a witness
 Every single day
 Help others to know Jesus
 The truth, the life, the way
  
 Let your Christmas spirit
 Shine for all to see
 Hope, joy, peace and love
 Your witness ought to be 

A Christmas Prayer

 The day is finally here
 A day of mirth and good cheer
 We’ve waited this long
 And sung all the songs
 That deck the halls this year
  
 The Christmas tree shines so bright
 And the houses are covered with lights
 The presents are many
 The foods getting ready
 And soon we’ll all wake from the night
  
 The children flock to the tree
 And open their presents with glee
 Paper flies everywhere
 Parents laugh without a care
 They just hope the children are pleased
  
 Once all the presents are open
 It’s time for the feast to begin
 We sit at the table
 And all who are able
 Take turns as we start to dig in
  
 Then a gentle hand says wait
 Let’s take a minute to pray
 So they all bow their heads
 As these words are said
 To give God the thanks for this day
  
 Oh, the joy of Christmas
 Glad tidings we all sing
 Blessed Hallelujahs
 To the King of Kings
 Glory in the highest
 Emmanuel is here
 Let’s not forget the reason
 For this special time of year
  
 Because God sent His son
 In a manger bed He lay
 Such a simple start
 Yet we celebrate this day
 Because that little babe
 Gave His life our debt to pay
 And now we’re born again
 If we follow in His way
  
 There’s a hush that fills the room
 As a little child says
 I want to follow Him
 Will you show me the way?
 And right there at the table
 Before the meal begins
 We pray the sinner’s prayer
 And that child has entered in
  
 Oh, the joy of Christmas
 Glad tidings we all sing
 Blessed Hallelujahs
 To the King of Kings
 Glory in the highest
 Emmanuel is here
 Let’s not forget the reason
 For this special time of year
  
   

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 

What A very Special Night

 What a night, what a night, what a very special night
 See the star in the sky shining oh so bright
 See the shepherds watching their flocks
 See the wise men follow the star
 Knowing not what’s to come this very special night
  
 Mary and Joseph travelled oh so many miles
 They awaited the birth of their first child
 Looking for a room at the inn
 There was no room for them within
 A stable would be there room for the night
  
 The shepherds were startled by an Angelic light
 Do not be afraid echoed through the night
 I bring good tidings of Joy
 Peace on earth for girls and boys
 And a host of Angels Loud Hosannas sing
  
 What a night, what a night, what a very special night
 See the star in the sky shining oh so bright
 See the shepherds watching their flocks
 See the wise men follow the star
 Knowing not what’s to come this very special night
  
 They came with their flocks to find that babe
 Wrapped in some clothes and laid in the hay
 They knelt down to worship Him
 Assured He’s the coming King
 Then for a while they would worship and stay
  
 Mary and Joseph knew their child was special
 They’d both been told of His coming arrival
 But they held their peace
 When the shepherds did speak
 And asked why they were summoned by angels
  
 What a night, what a night, what a very special night
 See the star in the sky shining oh so bright
 See the shepherds watching their flocks
 See the wise men follow the star
 Knowing not what’s to come this very special night
  
 The wise men arrived from the east they had come
 They knew that the star was a sign from above
 Their gifts they did bear
 Gold, incense and myrrh
 They knelt down to worship this child filled with love
  
 Thus, the scene was set
 No one would forget
 That the Son of God came as a babe
 And for many years
 Mary shed her tears
 For she knew what a price he would pay
  
 What a night, what a night, what a very special night
 See the star in the sky shining oh so bright
 See the shepherds watching their flocks
 See the wise men follow the star
 Knowing not what’s to come this very special night 

Christmas Eve Prayer

 It’s Christmas Eve
 The day before
 We celebrate
 The newborn Lord
  
 I hope all is well
 With you today
 Have you asked Him
 Your life to save
  
 When Jesus came
 That fateful night
 That baby boy
 Brought with Him light
  
 A light that shines
 In all our hearts
 To bring the life
 His love imparts
  
 A life that’s filled
 With heavens peace
 Enduring hope
 Joys never cease
  
 His promise came
 When He was born
 Salvation brought
 That Christmas morn
  
 My prayer this day
 For all of you
 Is season filled
 With life that’s full
  
 That you will find
 Salvation’s way
 On this December
 Christmas Day
