Merry Christmas


Recommended Posts

Perhaps you may have saw this before but I like to share this at this time of the year. Hope that each one of you has Merry Christmas. Praying for a cure for all of us.


Twas the night before Jesus came and all through the house

Not a creature was praying, not one in the house.

Their Bibles were lain on the shelf without care,

In hopes that Jesus would not come there.

The children were dressing to crawl into bed,

Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.

And mom in her rocker with baby on her lap,

Was watching the late show while I took a nap.

When out of the East there arose such a clatter,

I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.

Away to the window I flew like a flash,

Tore open the shuters and threw up the sash.

When what to my wondering eyes should appear

But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here.

With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray,

I knew in a moment this must be The Day.

The light of His face made me cover my head,

It was Jesus returning, just like He said.

And though I possessed wordly wisdom and wealth,

. I cried when I saw Him, in spite of myself.

In the book of life, which He held in His hand

Was written the name of every saved man.

He spoke not a word as he searched for my name;

When He said, “It’s not here,” I hung my head in shame.

The people whose name had been written with love,

He gathered to take to his Father above.

With those who were ready He rose without a sound,

While all the rest were left standing around.

I fell to my knees, but it was to late;

I had waited to long and thus sealed my fate.

I stood and I cried as they rose out of site;

Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem, the meaning is clear.

The coming of Jesus is drawing near.

There’s only one life and when comes the last call,

We’ll find the Bible was true after all!

I just got back from Branson and saw the Ganlin Brothers Christmas show there. They sang a song called "No Star over Bethleham" He said he wrote it because of the wars in the middle east. He hopes that it all ends soon and he never has to sing it again. Your post reminded me of that song. Donna G
