The Greatest Gift


An Original Christmas Poem by Laura Jae

THE GREATEST GIFT

The Baby named Jesus was born one night
under a star in the east that was filled with light.
It served as a guide for three wise strangers
bearing gifts of worth for the Child in the manger.

For it was in a stable that the Baby lay
because the Inn nearby had turned them away.
A Babe of a virgin had come to pass,
the promised Saviour was here at last!

Though...it makes you wonder why God would allow
His Son to bed in the trough of a cow.
On us too, it is sometimes lost,
His reason for living, to hang on a cross

Though short is the time He spent on the earth
Year after year, we remember His birth

What came to us as an innocent Babe
was a plan from God, our souls to save.

Yet, who could know what God would send...
He gave us a Gift that would never end.
The wee little Tot, who slept in the hay,
His life was given to show us the way.

To accept God's Gift, you have to believe,
and it is the finest Gift you will ever receive.
It is a Gift much greater than money can buy,
it is a Man who lived and never will die !

JESUS !
Believe in Him today and receive the Gift of Eternal Life this Christmas !
