Christmas poetry

The Only Way

Welcomed as a baby
In a manger He lay
Shepherds came to greet Him
Kings from far away

People came to see Him
As He taught them truth
Everyone that came to Him
Found love that He imbued

Day turned into darkness
He crowds all turned away
Soldiers came to take Him
No one with Him would stay

Beaten, bruised and scarred
A crown of thorns He wore
Nailed upon a cross
His garments they all tore

As He hung there bleeding
Breath barely possible
He cried out to is the Father
Please forgive them all

Then He died for all mankind
His blood shed on that cross
Redemption freely given
His grace for all of us	

In three days, He arose
Escaped a sealed-up tomb
He now abides in Heaven
The Lamb upon the throne

This grace that He extended
He day he came to earth
Was finally fulfilled
On the cross and with His death

Accept His gift of love today
And know His peace within
He only way to heaven
Is forgiveness for your sins

For this peace the angels sang of
To shepherds in the field
Is only yours if you decide
Your life to Him to yield

He stands there knocking at the door
Please open up your heart
The baby born this Christmas morn
Will give you a new start

New life is for the taking
The best gift ever given
A baby born to die for you
The only way to heaven
Christmas Poetry

Amazing

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 Angels Song

Quiet night. Stars shine bright
Giving light to all below
Shepherds watching. Sheep all grazing
All not knowing what’s in store

Suddenly, from the heavens
Angel saying fear thou not
Unto you today is born
A Savior, Christ the Lord

Then angelic host starts singing
Glory to God in highest heaven
Still proclaiming peace on earth
Goodwill to man. Go see the child

They went to see Him in the manger
Quiet babe among these strangers
Knelt to worship, Saw no danger
Praising Christ, the Lord

Glory to God, The Angels sang
Great is the Lord our God
Peace on earth, good will to all
Is the Angels song above

When we bow down to Christ the Lord’
For the first time the Angel chorus
Sings out a song  in joyful glee
That one more has entered heaven

Will that be you this Christmas day?
Will you ask Christ to be your way?
Will you invite Him in to stay?
Accept His gift today
And then angels will sing again

Glory to God, The Angels sang
Great is the Lord our God
Peace on earth, good will to all
Is the Angels song above

Glorious King

The first time He came as a babe
In a lowly manger He lay
The announcement came to shepherds on the field
He had left His throne in glory
To write a good news story
Of a Savior who would make the devil yield

The next time He’ll come in the clouds
The trumpet to all will resound
Those who put their trust in Him will meet in the air
Many will be left behind
In a world of chaos and crime
I am so glad I have put my life in His hand

Glorious King, Lord Jesus
Savior, deliverer friend
Glorious King, Lord Jesus
Victorious in the end
Victory over all my sin
Victory over pain within
Glorious King. Glorious King, Lord Jesus

The third time He’ll come in power
He will ride and the saints will follow
The sword of the Word will be wielded and ready for battle
All His enemies will be defeated
His redemption will then be completed
For a thousand years we will reign with Him in the heavens

Oh, what a day. What a glorious day
When Jesus comes down to earth
But even today He is coming your way
Into your heart is His birth
Will you welcome Him into your heart
Once He’s with you He will not depart
Today let the Savior show you what you’re really worth

Glorious King, Lord Jesus
Savior, deliverer friend
Glorious King, Lord Jesus
Victorious in the end
Victory over all my sin
Victory over pain within
Glorious King. Glorious King, Lord Jesus

He Came Down

Down from above
Bringing His love
The Savior came on Christmas day
Babe in the hay
Quiet He lay
While angels proclaimed His praise

Shepherds rejoiced
They heard Angels voice
To Bethlehem they made their way
Bowing in honor
Glory forever
To Jesus who came as a babe

He came down to save us
He came down to free us
From sweet little babe
To sacrifice made
He came down and gave us His grace

I cannot imagine
His love I can’t fathom
That He would give up His throne
His birth was obscure
His life was a blur
Only three years was this earth His home

From lowly beginning
To triumphant King
He had to give all he had
His death on the cross
Was such a great loss
But victory came in the end

He came down to save us
He came down to free us
From sweet little babe
To sacrifice made
He came down and gave us His grace

Emmanuel
God with us
The form of a babe
The Lord of Lords lay
Ready to redeem us all

He came down to save us
He came down to free us
From sweet little babe
To sacrifice made
He came down and gave us His grace
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

My Time of Need

All my doubts, all my worries, all my fears
I lay them down at your feet with my tears
Broken and ashamed
I cry out to your name
I know you’ll carry me all my years

Every day I know I go astray
It’s so easy to lose my way
As I sinner I plead
Getting down on my knees
That you’ll hear every word I pray

What a Savior you are, Lord Jesus
What a friend in my time of need
Every day that I live
I know you will give
Grace and mercy abundant and free

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.
