The ageless Creator   by angels worshipped,
The serpent-slaying   seed of woman,
Entered the earth   as an infant helpless.
To shepherds was shouted   world-shattering news.

Brilliantly blazed   the blinding Shekinah
As glorious Gabriel   gladly proclaimed:
“Hope is at hand!   All hearts rejoice!
In the village of David   the virgin has borne
The Savior, Messiah,   the Sovereign Lord.”

He is joined in his joy   by angelic armies.
Heaven’s happiness   heard by the earth:
“Glory to God   who is greatly exalted,
And peace to the people   His providence blesses.

By Joel E. Mitchell

Merry Christmas! I originally posted this last Christmas when my blog had maybe 10 followers, so I decided to post it again this year. The companion Easter poem can be found here.
