Savior to See

The whole town was buzzing
As soon as I awoke
“Our Savior born this day”
Were crazy words they spoke

I’ve got plans today
I guess that I’ll go see
Stop for a few minutes
Is something there for me

The child lay before me
Transfixed within my gaze
Something of His presence
Stirred my soul, amazed

A question now before me
Will I dwell and pray
A movement of transforming
Or go on my way

They

They saw a star
They saw a birth
God with us
Upon this earth

They saw Him heal
They heard him speak
The Word of love
Which all souls seek

They saw Him willing
Crucified
Conquering death
They saw Him rise

They saw a flame
A breath received
The Spirit flowed
And they believed

They walk the way
The broken claim
A soul of joy
Good news, proclaim

They share his gifts
Love, grace, mercy
And let this day
The “they”, be me

Are We Not

Are we not shepherds?
Who are filled with fear
Who wander the fields
Our senses aware

Are we not a witness?
To our Jesus’ birth
The source of our hope
Beyond here on earth

Are we not wise men?
When we lay down our gift
Acknowledge our king
With our praise to lift

Are we not in the story
Our of Christ to behold
In His love that’s woven
Of our life to be told

And Now is Here

Patience’s gift
Our soul prepared
Grace bestowed
Through silent prayer

And now is here
Our day of hope
Of wisdom’s view
Beyond our scope

Oh, little One
Before us lay
The humble door
Of holy way

A perfect love
Of one true choice
With angel’s song
Let us rejoice!

We Find What Is

A story told
Of scripture heard
A Savior’s birth
Of the true word

Of prophets tongue
Wisdom foretold
Of God with us
Fulfilled, behold

And still within
This day’s night
A calling of
This holy light

Accepting love
Our soul adore
We find what is
We’re searching for

Treasure of the Empty Present

A present beautiful
Underneath the tree
Unwrapping it with joy
Empty the box be

Come not disappointment
A gift to contemplate
Same as is our soul
This emptiness equate

Cherish this desire
To be filled with You
Let eye be of the soul
View gifts that we pursue

Lavished with Your blessings
All for us to share
Hope and peace and joy

Secure from rot or rust
Gift of faith is offered
In You we place our trust

Though beyond eyes sight

Store within life’s passing
Nourished when we pray

One within His body
Abundant is Your giving
Emanuel is born
In us Christ is living

Cherish here this treasure
Of emptiness so fine
Forever of the filling
With gifts of the divine

Great Light Appearing

Going to bed earlier
Tomorrow an event
A great light appearing
One that’s heaven sent

In a burst of glory
Darkness cast away
Warmth within its’ touch
Blessed on all this day

With anticipation
Let our soul prepare
Gift of underserving
That You love to share

Masterpiece of beauty
Praise in our heart fill
Wrapped in peaceful silence
In soul Your hope instill

Christmas Words

Christmas words surround us
Our rather, holiday
Let them not past by us
Dwell on what they say

Hope of a great message
Joy can truly be
Peace upon this world
Let them arise in me

A Saviour born to us
Truth now to realize
Eternal offered to us
This is our great prize

When upon their viewing
Let us turn to prayer
In the truth of knowing
God is with us here
