I heard a Tale

I have heard
that on a silent night
when angels sang
a child was born
and love began
to live among us.

I heard that
shepherds were told the story
of salvation
a gift of hope
for every nation.

I heard that wise men
followed a star.
they came from
lands far away
to see a child
born in a stable.

I heard that a girl
was the mother of the
son of God.

Is this what
the shepherds saw,
and made the wise men
kneel in awe?

I hope it is true
that this is what our saviour
came to do.
to redeem our world
and make
all things new

What a gift
we have
been given
that in His name
we have a place
in heaven.
