Thought for the Week

The Witnesses

If Jesus Christ were born today

And lay in stable bare,

If Jesus Christ were born today

And strangers came to stare.

Would you have love enough to spare

To take Him gifts and breathe a prayer

Or would you pass without a care

If Christ were born today?

No candles lit the stable bare

When Jesus Christ was born

No fires glowed to warm the air

When Jesus Christ was born.

But there was peace when all was done

And there was warmth as from the sun

And there was rest for everyone

When Jesus Christ was born.

No fond relations came to call

When Jesus Christ was born

No birthday cards hung in the hall

When Jesus Christ was born.

But all creatures, kneeling there

Breathed all their love upon the air

And worshipped Him with silent care

When Jesus Christ was born.
