Babe of Bethlehem

Isn’t it amazing that there are so many different names and descriptions of Jesus in the bible?  I was inspired to write this poem after searching through the bible for the various names of Jesus. God Bless You today and always!

 

Oh sweet Babe of Bethlehem, majestic yet mild

Born to be our savior, the anointed servant child

 

From the city of David was born the King of Kings

A helpless newborn, protected under angels wings

 

The Word was made flesh to fulfill the ultimate plan

Our one and only merciful God became the Son of Man

 

His birth fulfilled a covenant, promised long ago

Though we are unworthy, tender mercies You bestow

 

The Lamb of God and firstborn of all creation

Immanuel, for us You are the promise of salvation

 

God in human form, the only Alpha and Omega

A bright morning star, You are the promised Messiah

 

To live among Your people, You left Your shining city

You reign in heaven and on earth, our only deity

 

You brought Your brilliant light to a darkened earth

 The Wisdom and Power of God, delivered in Christ’s birth

 

There are no limits to the wholeness You bring

For Your glory, the heavenly army of angels sing

 

For unto us a child was born, our perfect Prince of Peace

Sent to save the world, Your love for us will never cease

 

Oh sweet Babe of Bethlehem, so innocent and pure

Born to be our savior, of that we can be sure
