My Christmas Story
A little child was born this day
to parents long ago.
Uncertainty surrounds his birth,
though Mary loved him so.
Perfect was he in every way,
yet Herod sought him out.
Society could not perceive
what he was all about.
With ignorance their passions flew.
“Be rid this Nazarene!”
A make-shift trial he was condemned,
to make their conscience clean.
Yet from the grave his love set free
the captives from beyond
Fulfillment in a better life
to those who would respond.
His love has grown two thousand years
to right that which was wrong.
Each Christmas we reflect his life
through each and every song.
