Christmas Hope




Hear the jubilant tones 
of Christmas bells ringing
And the magnificent echoes 
of angel choirs singing,
See the beauty and splendor 
of a starlit sky gleaming,
Feel the joy and wonder 
in a peaceful night’s dreaming.

Envision in your mind 
a baby laid on a bed of hay,
The glory that beamed from heaven 
on a star’s bright shining ray,
The amazement of the shepherds 
at what the angels had to say,
The shepherds kneeling to worship 
the holy infant where He lay.

Reflect on the great significance 
of that life changing night,
Feel your heart being pierced 
by God’s love beaming pure and bright,
Find hope that the gift of Jesus 
brings salvation, peace and light,
And assurance of God’s mercy and grace
 making all things right.
