Excellent
Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
The long awaited birth of Christ

The Savior Comes

by HarryT

Shelter from the Bethlehem cold
Mary laid him among straw folds
High above a star to behold

The people of the earth had awaited their promised gift
A Man who will cast a net saving all who are adrift
In his holy mission the Devil he is sure to riff

Three wise men from the Far East
honor with the stable beasts
for God's love and his Son-priest


Virgin was Mary
Her Son primary
God's missionary

Salvation is craved
The Devil is staved
God's people are saved

Christ asked us live with faith within
He asked to turn away from sin
If we do, we in end will win

Trust all you have contact with as you want them to treat you
Always be kind in what you say and in what you do
Do honor marriage vows and learn how to always be true

Set good example for all
In doing so you stand tall
In judgment, you will not fall

Show others the way
Have courage, what may

Watch out what you crave
Careful road you pave
