The birth of Christ


 

A virgin child was chosen

From all the human race

To wed a man called Joseph

Who took the Spirit’s place

The child that Mary carried

Conceived before they wed

Was destined from the start of time

To lead the Christian race

 

Conception of the Spirit – not of mortal man

The start of God’s great plan for man

This plan had been foretold

 

Joseph was not worried

He asked, “How can this be”?

 An angel told him what was true

His destiny fulfilled

 

In faith he married Mary

A virgin child, his bride

No consummation – still undefiled

They lived as man and wife

 

The birth took place in stable bleak

No bed – she lay on hay

Christ was born, as scripture said

The prophets had foretold

(Matthew 1:18-22)
