8. LIFE AND DEATH.

Here I have attempted to write a modern day Christmas carol.

Creation.

Me_at_lleisiau_2by SJ Alexanderson21 Nov 2013

In the womb of Holy virgin
Safe and snug and deep within,
Little Jesus wriggles spritely
As new life itself begins.

Miracle of Gods’ creation…
Innocence personified,
Baby feeds on Marys' goodness…
Child and Mother sanctified.

In a stable ‘neath the bright star
In the town of Bethlehem
Mary holds the Baby Jesus –
Truly Heavens’ precious gem.

Blessed be the newborn infant,
Praise our Lord – the King is here!
Hope for mankind everlasting,
Sing with happiness and cheer.

Jesus, son of God among us,
Hosts of angels all around…
Wise men bring their gifts in honour –
Hail, the newborn King is crowned.
