A SACRIFICIAL MOMENT

A SACRIFICIAL MOMENT
By: Darrelyn L. Tutt

Was God of all the universe,
Excited Christmas Day?
Did He see the baby Jesus
In the manger full of hay?

Did He see the mother Mary,
When she held Him in her arms?
Did He see her kiss Him gently,
Hold Him close and keep Him warm?

Did He watch the shepherds coming,
Closely following the star?
Did He see as wise men followed,
Traveling from a land afar?

Did He see the baby Jesus?
Did He see the tiny King?
Or did He see His precious Son,
That He loved more than anything?

The excitement of the moment,
All the human eye can see:
Was a sacrificial moment;
Christ would die for you ... and me.

Giving all; receiving nothing,
What a gift on Christmas Day;
When the God of all creation,
Placed our Savior in the hay.

Merry Christmas.
