The word is 8- letters,
Its sound gives a leap in the heart,
Expectations rise at its coming.
Do we even bother to know its history?
The coming of our saviour,
to redeem us from the sting of death.
The cry of a new born babe,
laid in a manger,
signifying our freedom from sin.
Do we ever stop to wonder?
Sit down to ponder?
The true essence of Christmas.
The tearful torture received from sin,
and the peaceful pleasure received from life,
given through Christ’s birth.
