For God So Loved the World

 
The Angels lulled the Heavens,
and stars lit up the sky.
The night God sent His Son to earth,
Born for us, to die.

I wonder how He felt that night,
Watching from above.
No room at the inn,
For His precious gift of Love.

So quietly and tenderly,
The image in my heart.
The Saviour of the World,
Eternal candle in the dark.

A tiny baby crying
In a stable so forlorn.
Lamb of God, Messiah.
The Reason He was born.

God shone ‘His’ Light where Jesus lay.
to say,’Behold my Son.’
and,
I wonder if His heart was torn,
The moment it was done.

John 3:16,
‘For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him, should not perish, but have eternal life.’
