EDITORIALS>>The Christmas child

To the editor:

As we celebrate this Christmas Day, let us remember the Christ child born in the hay.

He attracted Three Wise Men from afar, guided to Bethlehem by a big bright star.

They gave Him gifts to show their love, for the Son of God, sent from above.

The prince of peace, Jesus was his name, this sinful world was never the same.

He was the only one to live without sin, He performed miracles again and again.

Healed the sick, gave sight to the blind, taught others to be loving and kind.

With five fish and two loaves of bread, five thousand hungry people were fed.

He walked on water, parted the sea

And died on the cross for you and me.

He bore our burdens, our troubles and strifes, and promised us all eternal life.

He forgives our sins, eases our pain, all he asks is to praise his name.

So we honor the Christ child born in the hay, and praise the Lord Jesus, for this is your day.
