The Arrival

Marie Leone, Hamilton

He was born in a place where love was in danger
surrounded by gentle animals
who waited for Him.
Mary cast a look upon His face and smiled.
Joseph was in awe of his beautiful son.
And far away in the heavens, a magical star
shone bright over the land.
Three wise men were called to his side,
bringing adoration, and gifts from afar.
This was a special birth … a Holy Birth.
Gloria in Excelsis Deo sang the angels.
The baby was comforted by this glorious love.
Never before and even now had there been such a joyful birth.
The baby’s knowing look foretold of what was to come.
The concerns of his loving parents secretly hidden.
Hallelujah! Hallelujah!
The Saviour has arrived.
