When angels sang at Jesus’ birth
They proclaimed, to all on earth,
Jesus would bring peace and glory
For Christmas was Heaven’s story
Revealed in the Name of Jesus
While straw, freshly cut, the babe did cover.
By shepherds and Magi, He was worshipped.
But on the Cross, Jesus revealed His purpose.
Christmas and Calvary forever linked.
That Bethlehem night was bathed in light
Satan’s kingdom prepared to fight
Against He who would be the Galilean,
Their plan climaxing at Calvary’s cross
Was Christ’s victory, Satan’s eternal loss.
The promise of Christmas is linked with Calvary.
We can join the Angels’ song of Jesus’ glory
For our eternal salvation Jesus achieved,
And offered to all who can see and believe
The manger paved the way to Calvary!
