A Savior is Born: A Poem to the Infant Jesus



Oh Infant Jesus, Son of our Lord
Who spreads special love and is widely adored
You brightened the world on the day of your birth
And many years later, saved people on earth

Many people had seen and followed the star
They came from all over, some traveled afar
All came to praise You, the young and the old
Some came with gifts, like frankincense and gold

All those who looked in the manger and saw
The little Lord Jesus were filled with great awe
The Blessed Mother Mary gave birth to God’s Son
And Saint Joseph raised him, as God would have done

As He lay sleeping, on His small bed of hay
The people all rejoiced, He has come, praise the day
The shepherds, the angels, and the wise men of three
All came to gaze on the Savior to be

No one who came to the infant yet knew
All the wonderful miracles this child would do
He would heal the sick, and give hope to the poor
He would give all He had to His people and more

The Light of the World, the Savior is here
He will teach us and guide us and we’ll have no fear
He will bring us a message, the word from above
And that message is simple, the message is love

Far up in Heaven, the joy of Christ rang
The angels were smiling and happy souls sang
Come hear the good news, they said with great joy
Praise our dear Lord and His new baby boy

God gave Him a message, His one only Son
To save all his people, to make them as one
He was sent down to help us and show us the way
So we may be part of God’s Kingdom someday

The Infant Jesus came as God’s Eternal Light
A light that shines forever, so clear and so bright
I will follow that light till the end of my days
I will worship my God and give him my praise

I celebrate His birthday at Christmas each year
A day that fills people with laughter and cheer
The presents don’t matter, but I know what does
My Jesus, who will be, is now, and who was
