The Birth

It is a wonderful story
Set so long ago
A story of a new born babe
Who’s birth was meant
The world to save
And show us love
Though all our days
Until the end

But like a fairytale legend
It is not hard to see
The hope that lay behind the tale
That like the star
That glowed so bright
To summon magi
Through the night
Its message spent

And those who yet embrace it
Their faith we must salute
For midst the pain and the turmoil
That rends our world
And brings us grief
To yet maintain
Such a belief
Is beautiful.
