    Good News

    The Christ Child in a manger lay

    cradled warm in fresh, new hay.

    In the heavens shone a star,

    guiding Wise Men from afar.

    And shepherds on a hillside near

    knelt down in wonder, awe, and fear

    As angels sang of God’s own Son

    being born in David’s town.
