Christmas Eve – A Poem

Tonight is Christmas Eve! I am looking forward to our Christmas Eve candlelight service; it is my favorite service of the year. I awoke this morning with the joy and wonder of Christmas in my heart, and the beginnings of a Christmas poem in my head. I hope you like it.

Christmas Eve

Christ is born in a manger
Hallelujah the angels sing
Raising their voices in praise
Infant Son of God Most High
Shepherds in awe this night
Trumpets sound at His coming
Magi come from the East
Arriving to worship the King
Savior of the world, the Word made flesh

Even now
Voices praise Him
Emmanuel

I wish you all a blessed Christmas! May the praises of the King be in our hearts and on our lips this Christmas Eve and beyond.

    Linda,
    We have our own christmas eve service at a dear friend’s home tonight and we will have a time of singing carols and I certainly look forward to it because we get to praise God for who He is, what He did and does for us and the life abundant He has blessed us with. Thank you for the beautiful poem and post and I pray all God’s blessings on you as you enjoy the evening celebration of the King!
    In Christ,
    Vineet

    Thank you Linda!
    This is a really nice one 🙂
    I too am getting excited. Carol service starts in a couple hours. If ‘Silent Night’ is on the program, I promise I will cry!
    God bless you and a Merry Christmas to you!

    • Ann, I hardly ever leave church anymore without shedding at least one tear! And Silent Night is a sure thing for me, too. We usually close the service with it, but with all the changes this year I’m not certain. But I have hope that some things never change! Peace and Merry Christmas to you, too! Linda

        We had glows-ticks this year. The lights were turned off while we sang Silent Night. I felt like I was right there on the night He came. The manger was on the stage and Mary and Joseph were there with the shepherds, wise men and angels. I felt like I had somehow been taken back to that wonderful night and was sitting there hearing the Heavenly host sing of His appearing…
        Hard to put it in words but I hope you get the picture.
        Still in awe of Him,
        ann

      • Ann, That sounds like a wonderful service! We don’t have room for a live nativity, and share our sanctuary space with another church that has a service right after ours, but it was wonderful, too! Peace, Linda
