Receive God's Warm Love Through Reflection

Christmas Poem

on December 23, 2015

Here’s a repost from 2012, where we share a beautiful poem written by Mary Fairchild. May you celebrate Christ and the life He brings into your life this Christmas day and everyday of the year.

Lord, this is my prayer 

Not only on Christmas Day 
But until I see You face to face 
May I live my life this way: 

Just like the baby Jesus 
I ever hope to be, 
Resting in Your loving arms 
Trusting in Your sovereignty. 

And like the growing Christ child 
In wisdom daily learning, 
May I ever seek to know You 
With my mind and spirit yearning. 

Like the Son so faithful 
Let me follow in Your light, 
Meek and bold, humble and strong 
Not afraid to face the night. 

Nor cowardly to suffer 
And stand for truth alone, 
Knowing that Your kingdom 
Awaits my going home. 

Not afraid to sacrifice 
Though great may be the cost, 
Mindful how You rescued me 
From broken-hearted loss. 

Like my risen Savior 
The babe, the child, the Son, 
May my life forever speak 
Of who You are and all You’ve done. 

So while this world rejoices 
And celebrates Your birth, 
I treasure You, the greatest gift 
Unequaled in Your worth. 

I long to hear the same words 
That welcomed home Your Son, 
“Come, good and faithful servant,” 
Your Master says, “Well done.” 

And may heaven welcome others 
Who will join with me in praise 
Because I lived for Jesus Christ 
Not only Christmas Day 

– Mary Fairchild
