Bethlehem–the Cradle of Love


© Jeanne E Webster.  All rights reserved


Bethlehem cradled the baby in Mary’s womb

He became our Savior, risen from the tomb–

He came…

to save the lost. 


Gethsemane’s anguish pressed its clutch

His Father’s heart, He surely touched–

He paid…

the ultimate cost.


Nazareth succored a carpenter’s son

To a wooden cross, His onus done–

He ransomed us…

from all our sins.


Heavenly hosts descended below

He would be raised up, God’s will to show–

He is the Lamb…

our offerings.


O come, Emmanuel, this holy day

Bless our Nativity Feast we pray–

He is lifted up…

God’s priceless love. 


Little holy Child, our King of Kings

Release Your love, of which we sing–

Oh sing…

on earth and heaven above!
