Two thousand years ago in Bethlehem,
Some shepherds saw the most amazing sights,
An awesome being spoke these words to them:
“Fear not because the news I bring in lights,
Is good, news of a Royal birth, a King
has just been born right here in David’s town.
And what is more, you’ll find him in a barn,
a cattle shed, and in a manger lying down.”
The impact of this sight was hard to guess,
but shocked, these shepherds started down the hill,
and found the barn, still fearful none the less,
they saw a newborn baby lying still.
The Son of God, in truth, had come to earth,
We celebrate, with shepherds, his great birth.
