Christmas Song – Thelma Westra

PoemsofPraise-TWestraAs we continue to meditate on the Wonder of grace, the Incarnation of our Lord Jesus Christ during this week of Christmas, we consider a poem written by Mrs. Thelma Westra, a fellow church member at Faith PRC.

It is taken from her  collection of Christian poetry titled Poems of Praise (self-published), and is titled “Christmas Song” (p.58). The piece may also be sung to the tune of Psalter #278.

The shepherds, watching in the field
On that first Christmas night
Were startled when the Lord revealed
A wondrous heav’nly light.

An angel, robed in white array,
To them this message brought:
‘Fear not, for unto you today
A miracle is wrought!

‘The very Son of God and man
Has been brought forth on earth,
So hasten now to Bethlehem
To witness of His birth.’

So we today proclaim the praise
Of Him Who came to die
That we may live, and voices raise
In praise to God on High.
