Poem of Christ’s Birth

Poem of Christ’s Birth
Laijon Liu 20080912

The baby King in a manger he laid,
Born of Holy and Savior's his name.
Army of heavenly hosts sang in angel’s rhythm
To gather the shepherds on earth
And to bring their good news and aid.
Oh, Jerusalem, depart in peace,
For the Messiah’s here, and you are redeemed.
Wise men’s gifts to the King of Jews;
Herod raided in a rage,
And Ramah started her wail…
But look-
God called His son out of Egypt.
