‘On Christmas Day’

Sometimes it seemed like this day would never come
Like the waiting would be too much to bear
As we counted the weeks, the days, the hours
And whispered our hope-filled prayers


As these candle flames burst into life one by one
They reminded us week after week
That our God is not silent, he has given his word
As a baby, unable to speak.


Now the day has arrived we remember again
How he came without fanfare or distinction
To the heart of our dark, troubled world came a child
To bring light to the whole of creation


He came, not with the splendour or power of a king,
Though a king he undoubtedly is,
but with tantrums and tears and those fragile first breaths
and was crowned with a young mother’s kiss.


So today, as we celebrate the source of all joy
We must start to look forward again
For Christ who came to us is coming once more
To restore all creation to His rule and reign
