Thinking of the Child

I often wonder what it must have been like that night so long ago....when Christ was born. What went through the minds of the shepherds and Mary and Joseph?

Thinking of the Child

Gaze in wonder
At the Child-King
Given to redeem
People like me

So small
And helpless
Yet given to conquer
My greatest enemy

Laid in a wooden manger
Wrapped in simple cloths
One day to be laid
Upon a wooden cross

Come to destroy
The power of sin
This wondrous child

The greatest of gifts.
