This is how Jesus the Messiah was born.
His mother, Mary, was engaged to be married to Joseph.
But before the marriage took place,
while she was still a virgin,
she became pregnant through the power of the Holy Spirit.
Joseph, her fiancé, was a good man
and did not want to disgrace her publicly,
so he decided to break the engagement quietly.
As he considered this,
an angel of the Lord appeared to him in a dream.
"Joseph, son of David," the angel said,
"do not be afraid to take Mary as your wife.
For the child within her
was conceived by the Holy Spirit.
And she will have a son,
and you are to name him Jesus,
for he will save his people from their sins."
Snow angel sent from above
God sent His Son Jesus with love
Three kings followed a brilliant star
Knelt before Jesus bearing gifts from afar
A most wonderful gift of love
Sent on the wings of a dove
Peace, joy and happiness too
May all good blessings ensue
Happy Birthday Sweet Jesus
A love perfect and righteous
Fill our hearts this season
With love filled with passion
May we have charitable hearts
As this holiday season starts
May we all have food and shelter
And all our lives a bit brighter
