Four Gifts in One – A Poem

December 24, 2020

O’ Holy Night
Holy poetry, reflecting on the night that Christ was born.
‘The earth’s axis rocked gently, a newborn’s cradle.’
An event that would change the course of History and our lives forever.
Thank you @suzette for sharing your poetic meditation in celebration of the Living Word we commemorate on Christmas.Day.

One ordinary night, long ago, in a noisy manger,

The earth’s axis rocked gently, a newborn’s cradle.

His identity, foretold in stories and The Torah,

The eternal curtain had unveiled, Abba Father.

The priestly tabernacle lay swaddled in a stable,

His names: Hosanna in the Highest, Counsellor,

Emmanuel, Wonderful, Lion of the tribe of Judah,

His voice; Like the sound of many waters,

His mission: To deliver,

Four gifts in One –

Something wanted,

Something needed,

Something to wear,

Something to read,

The Living Word.
