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.
