On the 1st Day of Christmas My Everlasting Father Gave to Me My Savior in a Manger

It was a cold, dark night with no room in the inn,
For the whole town was filled to the brim.
Sent from above, with a plan the small King came down,
Born in a most humble place, and not wearing a crown.
He came to bridge the gulf created by sin,
making a way for a relationship with God, and new life to begin.
You see, Jesus is the best gift ever received,
As He came to save all who did, do, and will believe.
From a baby in a manger, then a teacher in the street,
to our Savior on the cross, He’s the best you’ll ever meet.

“For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.” - John 3:16

On the 2nd Day of Christmas My Savior Gave to Me 2 Parents Unexpected

Mary and Joseph were not yet married.
The angel appeared and Mary was told who she carried.
Surprised, nervous, she said “I am the Lord’s servant,”
Though looked down upon, and Joseph’s reaction not quite so fervent.,
She was thankful Joseph stood by her side,
For it would be a quite bumpy ride.
Mary was favored by God, and said yes to what was ahead.
She would give birth in a stable, and kiss the Lord’s sweet  forehead.
Maybe exasperated at times, she never foresaw the pain He’d face.
The worst day of her life, what He’d do for the worlds sin to erase.
For three long days she’d grieve, then oh the joy she’d know
For her baby’s face would rise, and once again show.

“She will give birth to a son and you are to give him the name Jesus, because he will save his people from
their sins…and they will call him Immanuel (which means God with us).” - Matthew 1:21-23
