'Twas the Night

'Twas the night of the dear Savior's birth
Only a stable manger awaited him.
There was no room in the inn.
A carpenter and his wife rode on a donkey
To Bethlehem, City of David,
Thus fulfilling a prophecy of old.
Shepherds would leave their fields
When choirs of angels annouced the Savior's birth.
Three kings of Orient would follow
A star and ask a king for directions,
But would go home another way.
The kings brought gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh.
The evil king did not know
That the King of Kings' kingdom was not of this world.
This king had a heavenly kingdom.
Joseph and Mary would take their newborn
To the temple and meet Simeon and Anna.
Gloria in excelius Deo! Glory to God in the highest.
An angel would tell Joseph to gather his family
And flee to Epygt for the evil king
Was about to have all the male babies killed.
The evil king died one day
And an angel told Joseph
To take his wife and baby home.
To Nazareth, they would go
Fulfilling prophecies old.
