Joy or Fear

The rain fell softly
onto the waiting earth
from grey skies
to give new birth.

When Jesus came
to earth as man
soft night enfolded
God's great plan.

Jesus came as a babe
in love to save
sinner man
in God's great plan.

Shepherds humbly watching
sacrificial lambs nearby
did not know God's sacrifice
was proclaimed in sky.

The wisest men on earth
knew of the birth,
and worshiped a king
not of this earth.

As we remember Christmas
once again each year
does it bring joy or fear
as Christ's return draws near?
