A CHRISTmas Dream
I dreamed that I was present
on that first Christmas Eve
When Heaven touched the earth
to change all hearts that dared believe.
I watched in awe-struck wonder
as Bible events took place....
The crowded Inn, the raptured look
etched on the Virgin's face.
A hush fell on the stable
on this holy, holy night.
Through the cracked roof streamed a halo
of a soft, cascading light.
In the air rose a crescendo
of angelic voices sweet
To celebrate the moment
when Mercy and Grace would meet.
Anticipation mounted as the
hour of midnight passed.
I wondered what the time was
as expectancy amassed.
"The moment of Redemption, "
came the answer loud and clear.
"Lift up your heart to thank Him,
for the Purchaser is here."
I trembled as the child came forth...
as the King of Kings was born.
As love reached out to touch my soul
on that first Christmas morn.
In joyfulness and reverence
I bowed down...but still don't know
Was it a dream...or have I been
to a Christmas long ago?
