Read an excerpt »

Before the first Christmas a long time ago,

the world had no love, no joy, and no hope.

The hearts of its people were full of despair.

A sense of great loneliness hung in he air.

 

The blackness of night seemed much darker back then, 

from the great lack of love and abundance of sin.

The people lived desperately, trying to hide

the sadness and emptiness they felt in their lives.

 

The world was aslumber. There was no celebration.

No praises were heard, no sounds of elation.

The silence surrounded the sadness they knew

and with every new day, the sadness, it grew.

 

God's compassion was stirred as he watched from above,

and his eye shed a tear as he overflowed love.

But God, the creator, had created a plan 

to bring light to the world and bring hope back to man.

 

All at once, in the heavens, the silence was broken

with the crative force of God's Word being spoken.

The angels burst forth in great jubilation

at the news of creation's coming salvation!

 

The heavens were stirred with the rushing of wings 

as angels all danced before their great King.

The trumpets were sounded, and Gabriel took flight

to carry God's Word to the young girl that night.
