Nativity – 23rd Poem of Christmas

Nativity

Noel! Noel! Break the silence of the night!
Angel voices shout to all –
This One comes to bring new light
Into the heart of anyone who hears His call,
Verifying the promises of old:
Into this world would come a child,
To bring change and newness to every soul!
Yes, because of Him we are reconciled.

I am nearing the end of this personal challenge to write an acrostic poem a day from Dec. 1-25 using words and phrases with a Christmas focus. The first line in each sentence begins with a letter that spells out a word, in this case Nativity. It has been meaningful to me, and I hope to people who have read the poems. Thanks for the likes and shares.

Worship – 14th Poem of Christmas

Manger in the snow

 

Wonder of wonders, the shepherds in awe
Open and worshipful as angels they saw.
Rise up, go to Bethlehem and see Him there,
Sleeping in a manger, there were no rooms to spare.
He sleeps, He his human, He is but a child,
In the loving arms of parents so mild.
Praise Him, through Him we are reconciled.

Believe – 6th Poem of Christmas

But Tin Nativity

 Because we are watched over in all ways
Emmanuel floods hope through our days,
Lasting love, sets hearts ablaze.
Infinite praise of His miraculous birth,
Evidence of God, come down to earth.
Victory over despair, death and sin,
Enriched when through Christ, He let us in.

Cut tin Nativity. I can’t remember where we bought this set, but I like its simplicity and clean lines.

Christmas – 5th Poem of Christmas

musicboxnativity-72

 

Christ the King, of Him we sing,
Hark! He comes, let music ring!
Reverberate this glorious sound,
Inspiring all, let joy abound.
Sing the melody of love
Trust and faith from God above.
Merry all who sing His grace,
Angel heralds bless this holy place
Serenity and peace let us embrace.
