A Special Christmas Message

Twas the night before Christmas and all through the earth

The world did not know, it was the eve of His birth.

Many hoped and prayed for the salvation of man

For the promised deliverance of God’s holy plan.

The world for centuries have been bound by a curse

The burden known as sin from Genesis three sixth verse.


Adam & Eve had eaten from the forbidden tree

Now the world knew not what it was to be free.

The chains of sin bound all of creation

Mankind’s great need was for divine liberation.


Yes how Satan loves to steal, kill & destroy

But God’s plan for life began with a boy.

You see, man needed a sacrifice, an atonement for sin

So a relationship with God he could begin.

How the Father loved & adored His creation

But man’s sin caused a huge separation.


God required a sacrifice to cover man’s fall

To free man from sin once and for all

There weren’t many solutions, no there was really just one

God would choose to sacrifice His only begotten Son

Yes Jesus, God’s Son, would become as a man

He would represent God, be His glorious plan.


Yes He was God, but wholly man out and in

And though tempted in all ways, would never know sin

He would suffer and die and then rise from the dead

He would pay for man’s sin, suffer in man’s stead.

With God’s glorious plan Satan could hardly contend

By Jesus’ glorious sacrifice man’s captivity would end.


Now this is no fable, no nursery rhyme!

This is the glory of God’s plan, in the fullness of time!


All heaven was abuzz with this incredible news

To become a man, the Son of God would choose

The angels’ excitement was incredibly contagious

The Child to be born was the fulfilling of the ages.

The angels were amazed, “God made lower than us?”

No wonder there was such an incredible fuss.


They could hardly contain the joys yet untold

For in the Christ child God’s plan would unfold

Gabriel, Michael and all the heavenly host,

Could barely hold back their glorious boast.

They would shout and sing to make sure they’d be heard!

Oh how hard it was to wait for God’s Word!


Then finally it came, God said “Go with good speed

Shout forth with joy – Oh yes indeed!”

The angels were surprised to whom they should speak

To shepherds with their flocks, lowly and meek.

Gabriel took charge & told the shepherds not to fear

But to rejoice for God has come near!


Gabriel announced, “Good news to all men

The Savior, the Christ is born in Bethlehem.”

“A baby in a manger can surely be found”.

Gabriel said, as the Lord’s glory shone around

Then suddenly there appeared the angelic crowd

Singing praises to God, with such beauty – and loud!


“Hark the herald angels sing, “Glory to the newborn King!

Peace on earth and mercy mild, God and sinners reconciled.”

Joyful all ye nations rise, join the triumph of the skies

With the angelic host proclaim, “Christ is born in Bethlehem.”

Christ the highest heav’n adored; Christ the everlasting Lord

Late in time behold Him come, off-spring of the favored one.

Veiled in flesh the Godhead see; Hail th’incarnate Deity

Pleased as man with man to dwell, Jesus our Immanuel”

Hail the heav’n born Prince of Peace! Hail the Son of Righteousness

Light & life to all He brings, ris’n with healing in His wings.

Mild he lays His glory by, born that man no more may die

Born to raise the sons of earth, born to give them second birth

Hark! the herald angels sing. Glory to the newborn King!”

(Charles Wesley)


Oh what a time of praise they had

They could not remember when they’d been more glad!

They loved to shout, dance and sing

For the earth was now receiving her King

The joy and exuberance from heaven above

Was being expressed in God’s gift of love.


A son was given a child was born

That mankind need no longer mourn.

Eternal Father our Prince of Peace

There will be no end to His governments’ increase

What an occasion, join the celebrations!

For Christ Jesus has come to free all the nations!


Joy to the world man’s been given a King

Now let both heaven and nature sing.

Jesus, God’s son, came as man Christmas day

A tiny baby boy,  precious in every way.

At this time we remember the baby Christ Jesus

Let it also be known He’s the Lord who frees us!


He rules as Lord or Lords and King of Kings.

To Him all praise and majesty rings.

He is God come to man to show man the way

That right-living,  peace and happiness we could know every day

We can have abundant life that none does deserve

By making a choice Christ Jesus to serve.


So on Christmas day let’s remember God’s plan

That by sending His Son God was reconciling man

And by choosing to follow Jesus, who came from above

We can all know the abundance of God’s holy love!
