Beauty and joy were quietly born
Early on that first Christmas morn
While a star shone, clear and bright.
Mercy, kindness, goodness and love
Came down to earth from heaven above,
In a tiny form, filled with light.
The light of that star, touching the earth,
Was a beacon of this miraculous birth
And the beauty that shone from within.
It hovered over this humble place,
Which was transformed by holy grace
For the One born to save us from sin.
A song of joy seemed to fill the air
As a multitude of angels suddenly was there,
Singing and praising God on high,
Proclaiming a love that will never cease,
The birth of the blessed Prince of Peace,
And their praises rang through the sky.
The peace and love this small infant brought
Was what the world so long had sought,
And hearts overflowed with joy.
We too now rejoice as we celebrate
And remember on this most special date
The gift of this blessed little baby boy.
