I deal in hope : Carolyn R Scheidies

Poetry: Unto Us—The Savior has Come

For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given:
and the government shall be upon His shoulder:
and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor,
The mighty God, The everlasting Father,
The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6

Jesus baby born in a barn,
Jesus twelve in the temple tall.
Jesus grown, giving out the Good News…
Jesus loves us one and all.

Jesus crucified on Calvary’s cross,
Savior laying down His life for me,
Resurrected, rising again
Jesus, Lord, setting His people free.

Jesus showing Himself, His side,
God-Man ascending into the sky,
Jesus sending His Spirit nigh,
Living today in you and I.

Lord, as You came as a vulnerable child,
help me to come to You in the same way..
.just as I am. Amen.

(Verse to read this Christmas or it makes a great pantomime to act out with your children.)
