The wind is blowing with the cold breeze air,
The children are singing everywhere,
The laughter and joy are always shared,

Had a carrot nose.

A song was heard at Christmas
To wake the midnight sky:
A savior’s birth, and peace on earth,
And praise to God on high.

The angels sang at Christmas
With all the hosts above,
And still, we sing the newborn King
His glory and his love.
(Poem By: Timothy Dudley-Smith)


“Getting Ready For Christmas”

Oh, Christmas is a time of year
I love with all my heart;
And best of all, I think I like
The getting-ready part!

We practice carols weeks ahead
And mail some things away
I get to help sign Christmas cards
And make the house look gay

We plan a program for our church
And make some gifts at school,
The postman brings us packages –
We hide them; that’s our rule.

We trim the Christmas tree, we cook,
We wrap for all we’re worth;
But best of all, we read once more
Of baby Jesus’birth.
(“Poet: Doris Wilde”)

“Christmas As A Holiday”

Christmas is a holiday for friends,
However, they may be, or not, related.
Remember that the three wise kings were strangers
In search of one remote, uncanny dream.
So may we all be far more than we seem,
Together bound for dark and haunting changes,
More lovely for the loves we have created
Along the lonely paths from means to ends,
Stumbling towards that star of Bethlehem.
(“Nicholas Gordon”)

Happiness is everywhere
Our hands are busy with many tasks
As carols fill the air.

“Christmas Is Coming”

Christmas is coming,
The geese are getting fat
Please put a penny
In the old man’s hat
If you haven’t got a penny
A ha’penny will do;
If you haven’t got a ha’penny
Then God bless you!
(“Author – Anonymous”)



Christmas is for mistletoe,
Evergreens, and holly;
Christmas is for Santa Claus,
Red and fat and jolly.

Christmas is for hearts to love
And voices to sing.
For on that day in Bethlehem
Was born the Christ, the King
(“Poet: Iris Lane Franklin”)



If I were a pine
With needles lean,
If I were a fir
With branches green,
Do you know what
I’d want to be?
A shimmering, shining
Christmas tree.


“In Hiding”
Sh! Sh! I’ve hung my stocking up,
And I’m hiding here to see
If Santa’s going to fill it up
With Christmas toys for me.

Two merry blue eyes
A very little nose
A long snowy beard
And cheeks like a rose
A round, chubby man
A big, bulging pack
Hurrah for old Santa
We’re glad he’s come back!


“Christmas Dog”

Tonight’s my first night as a watchdog,
And here it is Christmas Eve.
The children are sleeping all cozy upstairs,
While I’m guardin’ the stock in’s and tree.

What’s that now—footsteps on the rooftop?
Could it be a cat or a mouse?
Who’s this down the chimney?
A thief with a beard—
And a big sack for robbin’ the house?
I’m barkin’, I’m growlin’, I’m a bit in’ his butt.
He howls and jumps back in his sleigh.
I scare his strange horses, they leap in the air.
I’ve frightened the whole bunch away.
Now the house is all peaceful and quiet again.
The stockin’s are safe as can be.
Won’t the kiddies be glad when they wake up tomorrow?
And see how I’ve guarded the tree.
(“Written by Shel Silverstein”)


“Christmas Recipe”

A pound of fun
And a pound of joy
Make a nice present
For a girl or boy.

A cup of goodness
And a cup of love
Really are gifts
From heaven above.

A pinch of holly
And a pinch of pine –
Now, we know
It’s Christmas time.
(“Poet: Gay Dowling”)


“I’m a Little Reindeer”

I’m a little reindeer,
ready to fly,
I like to pull the sleigh,
way up high.
the holidays are here,
I can’t be late,
all the children,
just can’t wait!


“A Christmas Carol”

In The bleak mid-winter
Frosty winds made moan,
Earth stood hard as iron,
Water like a stone
The snow had fallen, snow on snow,
Snow on snow,
In the bleak mid-winter,
Long ago.
Our God, Heaven cannot hold Him
Nor earth sustain;
Heaven and earth shall flee away
When he comes to reign:
In the bleak mid-winter
A stable place sufficed
The Lord God Almighty
Jesus Christ.
(“By- Christina Rossetti”)

Christian Christmas Poems For Kids

I love to read Christian Christmas poems. So, check out our collection of Christian Christmas poems for toddlers.

“The Joy Of Giving”

Somehow, not only for Christmas,
But all the long year through,
The joy that you give to others
Is the joy that comes back to you;
And the more you spend in blessing
The poor and lonely and sad,
The more of your heart’s possessing
Returns to make you glad.
(“John Greenleaf Whittier”)


“Jesus Is The Reason”

In Bethlehem, God gave to us
The source of Christmas joy;
A star is shown on a miracle:
The virgin birth of a boy.

He was born both God and man,
A Savior for us all,
The way to get to our heavenly home,
If we just heed His call.

So as we shop and spend and wrap
And enjoy the Christmas season,
Let’s keep in mind the sacred truth:
Jesus is the reason.
(“By Joanna Fuchs”)


“Christmas Past”

Each Christmas I remember
The ones of long ago;
I see our mantelpiece adorned
With stockings in a row.

Each Christmas finds me dreaming
Of days that used to be,
When we hid presents here and there,
For all the family.

Each Christmas I remember
The fragrance in the air,
Of roasting turkey and mince pies
And cookies everywhere.

Each Christmas finds me longing
For Christmases now past,
And I am back in childhood
As long as memories last.
(“By- Carice Williams”)

“An Angel Spoke to Mary”

An angel said to Mary, “Fear not.”
And she said, “Let it be done as you say.”
And by the power of the Holy Spirit
She conceived a son that day.

The child within her womb
Was no ordinary babe.
He was the Son of God,
Born into this world to save.

Jesus came to save all sinners
And redeem them for the Lord,
And we celebrate each Christmas
To show Him He is loved and adored.
(“By Kelly Roper”)


“Old Santa Claus”

Old Santa Claus is a jolly man
Who brings us lots of toys, sir;
And none are happier Christmas time
Then little girls and boys, sir.

Have you not seen our Santa Claus,
With hair so snowy white, sir?
Just hang your stocking Christmas eve,
He’ll come that very night, sir.

And if you watch, perhaps you’ll see
This friend in furs hid deep, sir.
But I have never seen him once
I’m always fast asleep, sir.

Santa Claus is jolly, sir;
Santa Claus is kind, sir;
Santa Claus on Christmas eve
Comes riding on the wind, sir.
(“Poet: Maud L. Betts”)

“Real Joy”

What is Christmas without Jesus Christ?
It’s a holiday full of stuff.
Money and stress, teaching kids greed,
Some people are saying “Enough!”

“Love one another,” our Savior said.
It’s all about love, not things.
Let’s teach our children to serve, and create
The real joy the true Christmas brings.
(“By Joanna Fuchs”)


“This Holy Season”

As Christmas approaches, we feel the winter air
May your heart be warmed by feelings that you share
Take the time to tell your loved ones just how much you care.

This time of year is a time to treasure
One which can bring so much pleasure
With so much love it is hard to measure.

Special gifts to be found
And beauty all around
With music filling the sound.

Oh Christmas brings such joy
To so many little girls and boys
As they look forward to Santa and new toys.

May the world never forget
how this all began, the reason
that we celebrate this holy season.
(“Poet-Catherine Pulsifer”)


“The Meaning Of Christmas”

Far away in Bethlehem, a Baby Boy was born;
Born with neither riches nor with fame,
Yet Wise Men came from all around to bring to Him their gifts,
And peace was felt by all who heard His name.

Angels watched Him as He slept, and gently rocked His bed;
Their voices singing softly in His ear;
His Mother and His Father both gave thanks to God above
For the greatest gift of all, their Son, so dear

They knew His life upon this earth would not be filled with wealth,
They also knew He would encounter strife;
But most of all, they knew that He would be a loving Child,
And teach the love of God throughout His life.

At Christmas, as we celebrate this Birth of Jesus Christ,
Let’s keep in mind the truth of Christmas Day;
For it’s not the Christmas wrappings, nor the gifts that lie within,
But our gift of love to others in every way…)


“Christmas Treasure”

Dear Lord, we’re here at Christmas time
To honor your sacred birth,
Dear Savior, thank you for bringing all
Your precious gifts to earth.

As we delight in this holiday
With its bright and special pleasure,
We pray to remember all year round
You are the only true treasure.
In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.
(“By-Joanna Fuchs”)

“Christmas Long Ago”

Frosty days and ice still nights,
Fir trees trimmed with tiny lights,
Sound of sleigh bells in the snow,
That was Christmas long ago.

Tykes on sleds and shouts of glee,
Icy-window filigree,
Sugarplums and candle glow,
Part of Christmas long ago.

Footsteps stealthy on the stair,
Sweet-voiced carols in the air,
Stocking hanging in a row,
Tell of Christmas long ago.

Starry nights so still and blue,
Good friends calling out to you,
Life, so fact will always slow…
For dreams of Christmas long ago.
(“By Jo Geis”)


“Happy Birthday, Jesus”

Happy birthday, Jesus
and Merry Christmas too.
We all know that you love us,
And all of us love you!

Happy birthday, Jesus
And bless your mother too.
Mary said yes to God’s plan,
And gifted the world with you.
(“By- Kelly Roper”)


“Jesus Is Born”

Praise the Lord,
He sent His Son,
The one who’ll save,
Every man.

Christ the King,
Be our guide,
And our light.
Christ the King,

The Son of God,
Lead us through,
To the right path.

Christmas day,
The day you’re born,
Sent to the world,
To protect us all.


“Christmas Bells”

I heard the bells on Christmas Day
Their old, familiar carols play,
And wild and sweet
The words repeat
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
And thought how, as the day had come,
The belfries of all Christendom
Had rolled along
The unbroken song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

Till, ringing, singing on its way
The world revolved from night today,
A voice, a chime,
A chant sublime
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!
Then from each black, accursed mouth
The cannon thundered in the South,
And with the sound
The Carols drowned
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!

And in despair I bowed my head;
There is no peace on earth,’ I said;
For hate is strong,
And mocks the song
Of peace on earth, good-will to men!’

Then pealed the bells more loud and deep:
God is not dead; nor doth he sleeps!
The Wrong shall fail,
The Right prevail,
With peace on earth, good-will to men!
(“By-Henry Wadsworth”)


“Christmas Treasure”

Dear Lord, we’re here at Christmas time
To honor your sacred birth,
Dear Savior, thank you for bringing all
Your precious gifts to earth.

As we delight in this holiday
With its bright and special pleasure,
We pray to remember all year round
You are the only true treasure.
In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.
(“By-Joanna Fuchs”)

“My Christmas Day”

I ate so much
On Christmas Day
I sank in the snow
When I sat on my sleigh
Santa’s reindeer
Came to say
I’ll only pull you out
If you pay
I muttered
“I have no dough
I only have hay”
He replied
“Well hey man
Then there you’ll stay!”


“A Chubby Snowman”

A chubby little snowman
Had a carrot nose.
Along came a bunny,
And what do you suppose?
That hungry little bunny,
Looking for some lunch,
Grabbed that snowman’s nose,
Nibble, nibble, crunch!


“Christmas Figure”

Most people love to eat,
That’s everyone’s weakness
Especially on holidays,
There’s a lot of sweets,

But after the holiday,
We face this figure problem
Had bulky sides and a huge belly
So the main goal now is to be SEXY.


“Jingle Bells”

Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
On a one-horse open sleigh
Oh! Jingle bells, jingle bells
Jingle all the way!
O what fun it is to ride
On a one-horse open sleigh
Dashing through the snow
On a one-horse open sleigh
Over fields, we go
Laughing all the way
Bells on the bob-tails ring
Keeping spirits bright
Oh What fun it is to sing
A sleighing song tonight.
(“By-James Lord Pierpont”)


“The Revival”

Unfold! Unfold! Take in His light,
Who makes thy cares shorter than night.
The joys which with His day-star rise
He deals with all but drowsy eyes;

And, what the men of this world miss
Some drops and dews of future bliss.
Hark! How His winds have changed their note!
And with warm whispers call thee out;

The frosts are past, the storms are gone,
And backward life, at last, comes on.
The lofty groves in express joys
Reply unto the turtle’s voice;

And here in dust and dirt, O here
The lilies of His love appear!
(“By-Henry Vaughan”)
