There was a little baby–born a long time ago.
He had a special mission that His friends could never know.
His mother was a virgin; His Father dwells above.
This baby boy’s heart overflowed with compassion and love.
He taught in the temple when He was only twelve.
He focused on others instead of Himself.
He fed 5,000 people from two fish and some bread.
He turned water into wine the day a couple wed.
He demonstrated power–beyond humanities.
Who was this mysterious fellow? Who could He be?
He spoke words given to Him from above.
He came to be our example of love.
He healed many people; some blind who couldn’t see.
He taught them lessons about living righteously.
He came to His disciples who were in a boat on the sea
when a raging storm threatened their future destiny.
He calmed the raging storm; He walked upon the sea.
He looked them in eyes and asked, “Won’t you trust in me?”
He traveled many miles with one thought in His mind–
doing only His Father’s will–saving mankind.
He displayed God’s power and people watched to see.
“Who is this mysterious fellow?” they asked. “Who could He be?”
Soon their answer came–in a way they didn’t want to see–
When God’s Son, Jesus, died upon that tree.
Jesus fulfilled His special mission; He did the Father’s will.
He conquered sin and death when He died upon that hill.
Jesus rose from the grave, on day number three–
He paid our penalty for sin–for you and for me.
Oh, that little baby–born so long ago–
prepares a place in heaven, for you and me to go.
If we would only ask Him for forgiveness
and invite Him into our heart–
He would give us eternal life and love;
From us, He will never depart.
He lives in our heart and shows us the way.
When we reach heaven, “twill be a glorious day!”
