He didn’t need to find a place
All decked with silver and gold,
Adorned with riches and splendour –
Too wonderful to behold.
He didn’t seek the praise of man
Or a life of fame and glory.
He came to earth as love, unveiled;
His life became a story.
The darkness of this world could not
Prevent His light, so holy.
From heaven, He came, the Prince of Peace;
His heart was meek and lowly.
The wise men saw a bright light shine
Announcing the birth of a king.
They knew the Babe was heaven-sent
And brought their gifts to Him.
Jesus, Saviour of all mankind ~
Gift from God above
The King of kings, new life would bring
To a world in need of love.
How wonderful! How precious
That God’s righteous, holy Son
Should come to show us how to live
And the people we could become!
All He seeks is a place within
Our hearts, where He may dwell
For Christ is the reason for Christmas ~
…The story we love to tell.
