For Little Friends

When Jesus Was Born

  1. 1.

    The angel said, Fear not, Mary, thou shalt bring forth a son, and shalt call his name Jesus. (From Luke 1:30–31.)

  2. 2.

    Joseph went unto Bethlehem to be taxed with Mary his wife. (From Luke 2:4–5.)

  3. 3.

    While they were there, she brought forth her firstborn son, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn. (From Luke 2:7–8.)

  4. 4.

    And there were in the same country shepherds keeping watch over their flock by night. And the angel said unto them: Unto you is born this day a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord. (From Luke 2:8, 10–11.)

  5. 5.

    And when the angels were gone, the shepherds came with haste, and found Mary, and Joseph, and the babe lying in a manger. (From Luke 2:15–16.)

  6. 6.

    And when they had seen it, they made known abroad the saying which was told them concerning this child. And the shepherds returned, glorifying and praising God. (From Luke 2:17, 20.)

Samuel the Lamanite, high on the city wall,

Prophesied unto the people

Lest they all should fall.

Arrows could not hit him from a man of God was he

And he lived in the land righteously.
