Inspirational Christmas Poems

Be It Into Me!

O blessed Virgin, rejoice!
An angelic voice
On the wings of joy
Brings a plea, a choice.

To undo the deed
Of the dark deceit,
Hidden on the tree,
Apple sought by Eve,
Falling unforeseen,
Our ancestral sin
Shall be healed by Thee.

How shall this be?
Light of Life in me?
God in flesh concealed,
Father’s will revealed,
The universe receives
The Son of God, indeed?

How shall this be?
Lord, I beg of Thee,
Hearken unto me!
How shall this be?

On Thy holy hill,
Thy celestial winds,
Life creating springs,
Streams of mystery,
Veiled eternity,
Lord, enlighten me!
How shall this be?

Lo, in the whirlwind
Time has ceased to be,
God’s awaiting Thee,
Holy mystery,
Silence deep within.

Just one word to hear,
Our salvation’s near,
The Virgin’s soul beams,
On her lips appear
Like the streams of Eden
“Be it unto me!”
(By – Andrey Gidaspov)


You are a good little Christmas tree.
You are guarding the presents well
From little hands and sneakers,
So Christmas morn will go well

A Christmas surprise under the small tree sleep
And here are all the secrets the little tree keeps:

There is a truck for Brandon tucked away in a box
And a doll for little Jill,
Knitting needles for Grandma and for Grandpa some socks.
But for Mom and Dad, the bill.
“Merry Christmas”


Merry Christmas

At Christmas, we rejoice
But if you had the choice
Between worlds in which to appear
Would you really choose to do it here?

Someone did get born on a sill, silent night
To pierce the darkness with a bright, shining light
So whether you’re piss poor or real well-to-do
Consider if that someone just might be you too …


One Dark and Starry Night

On a dark and starry night
One star shone particularly bright
And led wise men to the sight
Where a prince was born that night.

When they arrived upon the scene,
It was almost like a dream.
There lay the tiny Lord Supreme,
‘Tween Joseph and Heaven’s future queen.

The Wisemen placed their gifts before him,
To show how much they adored him.
Their souls filled with joy to the brim,
As the angels sang their Heavenly hymn.

Now each Christmas we commemorate,
And rejoice with glee and celebrate,
The birth of Jesus, the one so great,
The Son of God, the Word Incarnate.

Inspirational Christmas Poems

The Lord’s Light Within

Lord, we reflect with thankful hearts
On the wonder of your birth
The love you expressed when you left
Your glory to come to earth

For your life was like a beacon, Lord
Shining brightly in the night
Filling the world with the radiance of
The Father’s glorious light

And we, too, long to have inside
Your light for others to see
The beautiful reflection of your grace
And the wonder of your majesty

For as your life indwells our hearts,
We can shine wherever we are
And arise to take hold of each new day
With your light ablaze in our hearts

To rekindle the flame within us, Lord
So it will not flicker nor dim
Ignite us with the light of your love,
So you will shine brightly within.


Heaven Sings

.Frantic shoppers crowd the stores,
Buying up bargains by the score.
Do they know the meaning of Christmas?
It’s difficult to tell for sure.

Christmas isn’t a race to see
How many gifts you can buy.
It’s not about cooking a ham,
Or about baking pumpkin pie.

It isn’t about hanging lights,
Or visiting Santa at the mall.
No, it really isn’t about
Any of those things at all.

It’s about the birth of Jesus,
And his true divinity.
It’s about the birth of the Savior,
Who came to redeem humanity.

So stop worrying about those sales,
And getting caught up in distractions
Let’s focus on what’s important,
And be responsible for our actions.

Jesus is the reason for the
the season we hold so dearly.
So let’s keep the focus on God
As we celebrate Christmas this year.
(By – Kelly Roper)


Jesus Is The Reason

In Bethlehem, God gave to us
The source of Christmas joy;
A star 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.

The True Meaning Of Christmas

Jesus Christ was born this day
So many years before
He came to a servant to the lost,
Though he was Lord of Lords

We celebrate this joyous time,
Reflecting on His birth
Not born in a mansion, but a stable
As if He had no worth

He came so He could identify
With the human heart of man
And gave His life as a sacrifice,
Offering a better plan

A plan that reconciles us back
To our loving Father God,
Bringing hope and redemption from
Sins ruling, iron rod

For this is the only reason that we
Should celebrate this day,
To become focused on anything else,
Would take the meaning away

So let’s arise with joy in our hearts
And share it with everyone
The meaning of Christmas will always be
The birth of Jesus – God’s son


Make Christmas Last All Year Long

Give to the needy whenever you’re able.
Volunteer at a soup kitchen at least once a month.
Wish people a good day every day.
Sing your favorite Christmas carol just because.
Send cards to let loved ones know you’re thinking of them.
Surprise someone now and then with a gift from the heart.
Let that mistletoe hang all year round and use it.
Pray for peace on earth each and every day.
Try to love your fellow human beings even though they’re far from perfect.
Give thanks for all the Lord provides.
Keep Jesus first in your heart.

Why We Celebrate

Why do we celebrate
Jesus’ birth at Christmas,
though we don’t know
when He was born?
It was necessary and inevitable
that we select a date
to celebrate an eternal miracle–
the coming to earth
of God in human form…Jesus,
Who changed the entire world
with His message of love,
forgiveness, humility and peace.
Christmas is an obligatory
and indispensable holiday
marking the transformation
from guiltless selfishness
to striving to follow His example
of service to God and our fellow man.
That is worth celebrating.

The Littlest Christmas Tree

The littlest Christmas tree
lived in a meadow of green
among a family
of tall evergreens.
He learned how to whisper
the evergreen song
with the slightest of wind
that came gently along.

He watched as the birds
made a home out of twigs
and couldn’t wait till
he, too, was big.
For all of the trees
offered a home,
the maple, the pine, and the oak,
who’s so strong.

“I hate being little,”
the little tree said,
“I can’t even turn colors
like the maple turns red.
I can’t help the animals
like the mighty old oak.
He shelters them all
in his wide mighty cloak.”

The older tree said,
“Why, little tree, you don’t know?
The story of a mighty king
from the land with no snow?”
Little tree questioned,
“A land with no snow?”
“Yes!” said old tree,
“A very old story,
from so long ago.”

“A star appeared,
giving great light
over a manger
on long winter’s night.
A baby was born,
a king of all kings,
and with him comes love
over all things.”

“He lived in a country
all covered in sand,
and laid down his life
to save all of man.”

The little tree thought of the gift
given by him,
then the big tree said with the
happiest grin,
“We’re not just trees,
but a reminder of that day.
There’s a much bigger part
of a role that we play!”

“For on Christmas Eve,
my life I’ll lay down,
in exchange for a happier,
loving ground.
And as I stand dying,
they’ll adorn me in trim.
This all will be done
in memory of him.”

“Among a warm fire,
with family and friends,
in the sweet songs of Christmas,
I’ll find my great end.
Then ever so gently,
He’ll come down to see
and take me to heaven,
Jesus and me.”

“So you see, little tree,
we are not like the oak
who shelters all things
beneath his great cloak.
Nor are we like the maple
in fall,
whose colors leave many
standing in awe.”

“The gift that we give
is ourselves, limb for limb,
the greatest of honor,
in memory of him.”

The little tree bowed
his head down and cried
and thought of the king
who willingly died.
For what kind of gift
can anyone give
than to lay down your life
when did you want to live?

A swelling of pride
came over the tree.
Can all of this happen
Because of just me?
Can I really bring honor?
By adorning a home?
By reminding mankind
that he’s never alone?

With this thought, little tree
began singing with glee.
Happy and proud
to be a true Christmas tree.

You can still hear them singing
even the smallest in height,
singing of Christmas
and that one holy night.
(By – Amy Peterson)


Practice Jesus

If we practiced Jesus every way,
It’d be like Christmas every day;
If we, like Him, were meek and mild
And loved each woman, man, and child,
If we’d read our Bible, it’d remind us,
So that every single day would find us
More and more in sweet accord
With our sweet Jesus–Master, Lord.

Then every day that we’re alive
Would be like December 25.
