First Christmas

 MERRY CHRISTMAS

The word became flesh, on that very night.
When the shepherds saw the beautiful sight.
It was our Savior Jesus who was born,
He came from heaven, in the early morn. 
It was that night, when Salvation had begun.
When God had sent his beloved Son.
He came down to save us from our sin.
We could surely see God's love within.
He died on the cross for our sake.
So that our bondage of sin would break.
Now every Christmas, we recall that very day.
When we proclaim, that it's Jesus Birthday.
