Merry Christmas

My creation

Away-in-a-manger-starThe Gift of Christmas, if only they had known,


Away-in-a-manger-starThe King was to be born to save the world,


Away-in-a-manger-starThey would have covered you in garments fit for a King,


Away-in-a-manger-starFabric woven with gold thread with the Word of God,


Away-in-a-manger-starA crown of jewels would have adorned your head,


Away-in-a-manger-starBlankets made from beautiful fabrics and embellished with lace and finery,


Away-in-a-manger-starFor your cradle.


Away-in-a-manger-starWhich would have been made from the finest gold,


Away-in-a-manger-starThey would have songs and hymns written to celebrate your birth,


Away-in-a-manger-starMillions of people would have traveled to meet you,


Away-in-a-manger-starOffering you many places to stay,


Away-in-a-manger-starI ask you sweet Jesus to stay close by me forever,


Away-in-a-manger-starAnd love me I pray,


Away-in-a-manger-starI give you a place to live within my heart,


Away-in-a-manger-starTo praise you with my talents and voice lifted high,


Away-in-a-manger-starYou are the greatest gift

My creation

Away-in-a-manger-starThat our Father has given,


Away-in-a-manger-starThe only gift I need at are the greatest gift of all.

Away in a Manger

The song for this post is Silent Night.


Wishing you and your family a very blessed Christmas.

Blessings, Karen
