If Christ Had Not Come

This poem was passed on to my wife by a resident at an old age home that she was caroling at.  Apparently it was written by the resident’s mother, on her death bed… She had hoped that it would be shared with anybody that would value it.   (Unfortunately my wife didn’t catch the author’s name)

If Christ Had Not Come

If Christ had not come, there’d be no Christmas Day.
There’d be no Christmas trees, with gifts on display;
There’d be no present given and no carols sung,
There’d be no Christmas stockings, on bed to be hung.
There’d be no cards sent to let friends know,
The Saviour came down to this earth below.
There’d be no Peace on earth, or goodwill to men,
Or hope of Christ Jesus returning again.
There’d be no New Testament, with stories to tell,
How Christ performed miracles, and made people well.
How he set us examples, and showed us the way,
To help one another and taught us to pray.
There’d be no bridge gulfed between God and man,
Of the promised fulfillment of the salvations’ plan.
There’d be no cross to remind us that God once came,
Revealed in Christ Jesus this world to reclaim.
So let us remember and thankfully say,
We are glad Christ was born and we have Christmas Day.

Thanks Duane
