Sing - a poem for Christmas

I used to write these poems to be read as the last lesson at our Christmas Morning Carol Service, but my father, who was the Vicar, retired last year, so we're at a new church, who don't need it. So, I thought I'd share it with you. My inspiration this year came from the wonderful tradition of carol singing that I've been joining in as Christmas has approached.


Sing of shepherds sleeping in lonely fields.
Sing of poor men who heard the good news.
Join in chorus for the joy of those who heard that night
Of the birth of Our Salvation.

Sing of Bethlehem, little town unknowing.
Sing of a star shining in the East.
Trill out its beauty to all those who will listen
To our message of Joy and Peace.

Sing of a mother, young and blesséd.
Sing of her love for her holy child.
Whisper a lullaby for the babe in her arms,
Who is God Among Us All.

Sing of a child, lying in a manger.
Sing of God in human form.
Soar your voices in triumph of the Infant King,
Saviour and Lord of All

Merry Christmas
