Christmas Poems

Remember Christ in Christmas

Let’s remember Christ in Christmas 
     As we celebrate his birth. 
We’ll think about the life he led 
     In his days upon this earth. 
He was born, not as a rich man, 
     Or in a palace like a king, 
Yet, for his welcome to our world 
     God’s angels came to sing. 
His goals were not as ours are - 
     To pass exams at school. 
He never owned a house in fact, 
     And never came to rule. 
His parents both were poor folk. 
     His father worked with wood 
And Jesus was a carpenter, 
     A trade considered good. 
He never travelled far from home 
     As people do today. 
He spoke of love and caring, 
     And he taught us how to pray. 
These words which Jesus taught us, 
      That should fill our human minds 
Are: 'Love your neighbour as yourself
      And care for all mankind.'
