THANK YOU GOD FOR JESUS

Posted on by Donna Sue

 Elegant Christmas Tree

I truly now can say to you, as Christmas drifts away,

This was an Advent to remember and a special Christmas day.

Our families all had fasted and petitioned God for grace,

 What  joy to see at Holy Mass the peace on each ones face!

With four weeks of preparation and sacrifices made,

We came to place our gifts of straw where Jesus would be laid.

Each piece of hay an offering, a penitence of love;

It was all to welcome Jesus, the Christ child from above.

The church was filled with candles; an ethereal kind of light,

While the choir sang out like angels just before it turned midnight.

When he spoke the consecration, “Father, Son and Holy Ghost”

The anticipation ended and Father raised the Host.

Thank you, God, for Jesus, and thank You for his birth.

We thank you for the time he spent those years upon this earth.

But mostly now we thank you God, he rose up from the dead,

That we may feast each day we live on Consecrated Bread.
