God for a poem, a snappy little rhyme,
little, bright and happy Christmas thought sublime.
something sunny, because the weather's cold;
should be warm and loving, and also somewhat bold.
thing I want to share in language very plain,
reason told so long ago of why the angels sang.
everywhere around us, all over planet earth,
to watch and keep us, from the moment of our birth.
and I were born, they sang for joy and danced
knew about our journey for ages in advance.
walking along our path, sometimes we slipped and fell,
angels helped us up, making sure that all was well.
knew God had a plan for us, from the very start,
from family and friends, it was in the Father's heart.
smiled and laughed and clapped their hands with glee,
how much He loves us, you and you and me.
our brother; God is our heavenly Dad,
Spirit is there to guide us and make our hearts feel
angels are the G-men, God's secret service troop,
and play beside us, alone, or in a group.
time you're worried, or are feeling quite alone,
the heavenly sentinels sent out from the throne.
for the music sung by the heavenly choir;
praise to God with voice and lute and lyre.
music of the universe, fill your soul with joy
remember the birth of that precious baby boy.
born again in willing hearts, ones not afraid
welcome the Christ Child who's in our manger laid.
join the heavenly chorus to announce God's Good News,
Jesus died for all mankind; no one He'll ever lose.
As we go
on our journey, back home from whence we came,
never stop praising our heavenly Father's name.
enjoyed this rhyme, you may share it when you can,
of God's creatures are included in His plan.
all sit down together at His banquet table of love,
in peace together, all on earth and in heaven above.
excuse will do to tell you we love you,
written 11/07/03 for all the Saints on earth.)
