The First Christmas Day and Night

The first Christmas day and night

By May Kwek

Many years ago on this night
Over Bethlehem a star shone bright
And God came to earth as man
To save us from death’s eternal hand

Many years ago on this day
Three men who had travelled a long way
Came with gifts for the king
And that night did angels sing

When the choir from heaven sang
Shepherds left their flocks with thanks
To see the saviour for themselves
And realise heaven’s intangible wealth

So many years ago on this day and night
The earth received a bright new light
And the hope of salvation was born that day
As the baby who in the manger lay

Happy Birthday Immanuel
God with us
