TRUE CHRISTMAS DAY

In a cold day of a cold season Jesus was born.
The heart of humankind was cold; there was void of love.
In the lowest manger of cattle Jesus was born.
There was no room in human hearts for whom He came down.
The earth, all around, was ready to receive her King.
But the earthly kings, none of them was aware of it.
No bell was rung in the palace to receive the King.
There was wailing in the land which killed mothers’ spirit.
Lowly shepherd were they who received the new born King.
Their dwellings were away in the fields of Bethlehem.
The angels sang the gladdest anthem of His coming
But the human hearts were filled with vices to kill Him.
Today He’s looking for a room, - for Him to abide.
Will you not lend the sweetest home of your heart to Him?
Long time ago, He was born in a manger aside.
Oh why not today, let Him come to your heart to stay?
Christmas day was foretold in the garden of Eden.
Christmas day was dawned on the day of incarnation.
But the true Christmas day, the truest one be dawned when
Christ is born in you, - imparting His life and nature.
