A Special Gift

Today’s poem is a very special guest post and gift from Mrs. Buckeye.  My talented wife, Colleen, adds her voice to this Advent season as we both await the birth of our Savior.

A special gift arrived for us!

 It came so quietly . . .

 . . . perhaps you did not know.

 There was no fancy wrapping,

 not even a pretty bow,

 no ornate frills or glitter,

 no festive party mood . . .

  . . . Just a tiny, baby boy

 born in a stable crude.

 He was our Savior King.

 He came to earth to bring

 God’s gift of love.

      

 God’s greatest gift was giv’n to us.

 It was His only Son . . .

 . . . perhaps you did not know.

 He left a throne in heaven

 to come to our world below.

 His birth was without grandeur;

 a star His only crown;

 Just a precious little babe;

 our God, to earth came down.

 He is our Savior King

 To Him all Praises sing

 God’s gift, great love.

 

     So, turn your eyes from glittering scenes

 with Santa’s presents bright . . .

 . . . perhaps you need to know.

 Just turn from worldly glitter,

 and gaze on that glorious night.

 Look there upon the baby

 in God’s own Holy light.

 Now, look past the party crowds

 past shopping to be done.

 Look past all worldly things.

 Look at the baby king,

 God’s Gift has come!

  1. beautiful poetry Richard, Colleen should have her own blog and post more poems, please?

    Know you’ll have a very spiritual Christmas, as opposed to the glitzy commercial ones most get distracted by! And may 2023 bring good health to you and yours 🙂
