The Real Christmas Story
By David Smith December 18, 2012
“Twas the Night before Christmas and all through the town
The cattle were lowing; the inn-keeper wore a frown.
Mary in a stable, Lying in the hay,
Anticipating the birth, Of the first Christmas Day.
Born in a manger, the flocks in the field
The lambs as they wander for the good shepherd to appear;
When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter
Even King Herod knew something was the matter.
“A King is born!” the Wise Men had to say
Herod was anxious to eliminate Children, that day
The King had his exodus, to Egypt he flew
The Old Testament predicted of his prophesy so true
All the parables and miracles become clear
He would we worshiped by believers so dear
To believe in his name; He is the light
Happy Christmas to all and to all a good night.
