“Joy to the World”: A Christmas Poem

“Joy to the World”
December 25, 2012

Joy to the world,
The dragon has been hurled

To the earth
And trampled by
The holy birth
And sinless life

Of God the Son
Who came and won

A people from
The sting of death
And curse of sin
With his last breath.

O Holy Night,
Darkness trembled at the Light.

The baby born
And laid inside
A manger would
Be crucified

And placed into
A borrowed tomb.

But then the hand
Of God the Father
Raised his Son to
Live forever.

Hark! the herald angels sing,
Jesus is a risen King.
