Advent Thankfulness – A Poem

Last year I wrote an acrostic poem titled Advent, and I have been astounded in the past 4 weeks how many times it has been viewed. The search terms stats on my blog show that a lot of people have been searching for Advent acrostic poems. Since it is a topic of great interest, I decided to write another one. It is quite different from the first but carries the same Great News of hope found in a manger.


Angels to the shepherds sing
Divine arrival of the King
Victory is now in sight
Emmanuel comes this night
Need of all mankind is met
Thankful hearts, He paid our debt

I am a Jesus Freak, and I don't care who knows it. I am a wife, mother, sister, aunt, daughter, and friend. My blood family is only part of the larger family of Christ that I belong to. I love to write, especially about my dear Savior.

  1. Would you mind if I use this poem for a Christmas program by our K-5th graders? It will be introduced giving credit to you as author.

  2. The ADVENT, the birth of Jesus Christ, the King of kings and Lord of lords
    has divided not only mankind but all of history; we use B.C. for before Christ, and A. D. for “anno domini — “in the year of our Lord”. Yes, it was
    the most significant event in the history of mankind, if we include the cross and His resurrection in our calculations. God bless you!!

  3. Thank you for doing another Advent acrostic! 🙂 I’m so encouraged that people are looking it up and interested! God bless you as you write from the heart!

    • Deb, It is encouraging that people are looking for information on Advent. That original poem has had over 570 page views! I just love Advent and looking forward to Christmas. Peace, Linda
