T' was a night to remember
And all through the town
All was quiet . . . With no one around

Except for the traveling man
And a woman with child
On a late winters eve
That was so mild . . .

Sitting quietly, filled with peace
Mary knew, time was drawing near
To give birth, yet feeling so weary
Full of faith, not relenting to fear

Joseph walked slowly beside her
She watched, as he became forlorn
Eagerly searching for a place . . .
For this blessed child to be born

"No room, no room," is all that he heard
Until an Innkeeper gave a stable for them, to lay
Telling them "nothing available, not one bed
Go then . . . make a place in the hay"

With relief, the couple made ready
To await the Babe, that heaven sent
Looking up, they saw a great star
Assuring them, As they went . . .

Later that night, Jesus was born
While the town was asleep, unaware
Sent by the Lord, God on high
For all people . . . our sins to bear

Let us lift our hands up to Him
Not push that little "Babe" aside
For "He" is the light of the world
Not Santa, on a night's sleigh ride

Yes . . .T'was a night to remember
Long ago, with the snow falling slow
A sweet little Babe, lying in a Manger
Here, because "God" loved the world so.

It certainly was a night to remember and thank you for this beautiful message. Hopefully, this year, more people will focus on the true joy and love that was born that night. You have a wonderful gift. Thank you for sharing it.

Love, Karen
