A trough of hay the only place
for Him to lay and rest
A babe among the flocks of men
A loving God’s bequest
His birth a gift to everyone
A teacher for all time
A lesson for all loving men
A message so sublime

Adds new meaning to Joy To The World. A worthy reminder of the season's origin sir.

Beautifully written - an inspiring sentiment.

Brian, this expression of faith and what the season is about strips away all the things that people don't like about the season and gets to the heart of it. Beautiful.

A wonderful testament to this day when our dear Saviour was born! Merry Christmas Brian.
