There came two weary travellers

upon a dusty road

the one was very great with child

uncomfortable and cold.

Nov 29 030

The other too was cold and spent

upon his brow a frown

for he must find, at this late hour,

a place to lay them down.

Each time they stopped along the way

the answer they would hear

“No room” and then the door would close

though Mary’s time drew near.

At last, a lowly stable found

but it was dry and warm

and here amidst the animals

God’s only Son was born.

Amazing for the King of Kings

there was no jeweled crown,

no palace bed with silken sheets

concealing princely gown.

Instead, a manger bed of straw,

a star to crown His head

and royal proclamation came

to shepherds where they tread.

The sky was lit with heav’nly light

as angels sang in awe,

“All heav’n within a manger lies

a gift for you from God.”

Thanks Barbara for letting me use your poems on my blog. You are so gifted.

Merry Christmas everyone! I pray you all have a blessed Christmas with your families. I couldn’t decide between two songs so I’m including them both. The words are powerful. Enjoy. God bless.
