A Christmas Clear
By His Father held more than dear, as a babe He gave Himself here
The full hope of the year, that we may live without fear.
With good food and cheer, God’s great heart without peer
To us, drew near, and sat down without a jeer
To abolish our debts in arrear, and at last every tear.
God Himself from eternity, with second person of the Trinity
In the Spirit gave us abundant life in perpetuity, this, no superfluity.
With full design He created me and thee.
In the light of His heart what will we see?
He sent possession of virtue by decree, and works it out in you and me
Virtue’s riches without fee.
Our hearts by grace rejoice to be
Bringing up jewels from life’s tumultuous sea, before our King, Who did foresee
My life I thought so carefree, my death did guarantee.
But with the evil one He did disagree
And from eternity, the tree
He did oversee.
He came to bend every knee, that our hearts might be free.
It is Christmas indeed, we in Him to be.
The star brought clarity
Here lay deity in humanity.
An oddity in brevity, beauty and charity.
Came that verity, reality
With sweet frankincense of humility, joined by highest majesty.
He banished enmity, and robbed vanity
That we might touch infinity.
In heartfelt jollity without banality, what ferocity of vitality.
Gone timidity, now comes tenacity;
In place of iniquity, forgiveness and dignity.
Every soul a city in unity, blessed be He, forever the Trinity.
The master of Creation, in fullness of administration
In innovation for every nation
The Jewish lion of adjuration
Kept not His exalted station, but clothed in incarnation
Took up our litigation, and offered a libation.
Worthy beyond all ovation, our joyful hearts in elation
Kneel in adoration.
Great is His salvation.By Azalea Dabill, December 9, 2022
