When God gave us Jesus

– the One Who would save us –
Heaven could not contain itself.

Light spilled from a star,
heralding His arrival.

The earth burst into life.
Birds called for revival.
Morning Glories began
to bloom in the night chill,

and frightened
shepherds
trembled like sheep
when angels awakened
their sleep with song
as light as snowflakes,
as powerful as a
Tsunami of harmony
pouring onto the earth
at Jesus’ birth.

Oh, praise Him!
