“Christmas Tree” by Sura Nualpradid

Gloriously shining,

In the darkness great Light:

Such was the Star

Upon the Christmas night.


For Christ is the Light

Shining in the world dark;

A star of brilliance then

Would be His true mark.


Wise men sought the Christ,

As wise men still do today,

Following His Light

As they travel His Way.


Bearing gifts of gratitude

And traveling long and far,

Such is the life journey

Following the Morning Star.


For on the Cross so cruel

And in the manger cold

We find Love deep and true,

The eternal Truth of Old.


Kneeling before Him,

Lord, Master, King, Friend,

We find renewal of life,

Life which has no end.


In following the Star,

In traveling the wondrous Way,

Our hearts experience daily

The miracle of Christmas Day.


So in this Season

And in seasons always,

Let us lift our hearts to God,

Glorifying Him with praise.


And marvel the Star,

The Light of mankind:

Therein eternal brilliance

Our grateful hearts did find.

    The miracle of Christmas Day.
