Christmas Greetings

T’was about two thousand and seventeen year back,
that a humble, Jewish child came forth in a shack.
His name was doth Jesus,
“God saves” his name means then.
This child being the Son of God!

He grew to be a radical leader,
“Love one another,”  said he.
Forgive your brother, not seven times 
but  “until seventy times seven”  said He.

Jesus said to those who thought they
should stone woman caught in adultery,
“He that is without sin among you, 
let him first cast a stone at her.”

Alas we are all sinners…
no-one did stone her,
and Jesus said,  
Neither do I condemn thee: 
go, and sin no more.”

Radical Jesus, Wonderful Saviour,
hated by high priests and authorities.
Tortured and beaten,
mocked and abused,
killed on a tree…killed on a tree you see…

Jesus was different.
Son of Most High,
gentle and humble...he died,
but rose up victorious, 
death could not hold him …so glorious!

His Father’s plan was this cross for redemption. 
Said this will atone for their sins to save them.
If they believe in this Son, I sent them.
The good news is this.
This is Christmas you see,
the birth of a Saviour to thee.
