The Lord gave me this poem around Christmas a few years ago. I have thought of it often, but have never shared it until today. I pray that it brings joy to your heart and praise to God.
O the chasm That grace did span
when our great God became a man!
Angels did herald the glorious birth
That gave my soul salvation’s mirth.
True joy and peace dwelt within
that little baby’s holy skin.
The child t’was born that fateful day
Still shows the world the truth, the way
To all who’ll hear the Spirit’s voice
drawing them to the Father’s Choice
And if today with heart believe
God’s greatest gift you shall receive
And have when your life’s race is run
Eternal life through Christ God’s Son.
