Religious Christmas Poems

Merry Christmas

Merry Christmas!
Isn’t it fun
To say “Merry Christmas”
To everyone?

Time for a party
And presents and things
That makes children happy
And give their hearts wings!
(“By-Nicholas Gordon”)

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!”
(“By- PiddlyPoems”)

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.

***************

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!

It was as if an earthquake rent
The hearth-stones of a continent,
And made forlornly
The households born
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 Longfellow”)

Year-Round Joy

Christmas is full of shiny things
That sparkle, gleam and glow.
These holiday pleasures dazzle us,
And yet, deep down, we know…

That Christmas has its special gifts,
But our year-round joy depends
On the cherished people in our lives,
Our family and friends.
(“By-Joanna Fuchs”)

Candlelit Heart

Somewhere across the winter world tonight
You will be hearing chimes that fill the air;
Christmas extends its all-enfolding light
Across the distance…something we can share.

You will be singing, just the same as I,
These familiar songs we know so well,
And you will see these same stars in your sky
And wish upon that brightest one that fell.

I shall remember you and trim my tree,
One shining star upon the topmost bough;
I will hang wreaths of faith that all may see —
Tonight I glimpse beyond the hear and now.

And all the time that we must be apart
I keep a candle in my heart.
(“By-Mary E. Linton”)

**************

God Bless

God bless the master of this house,
And all that are therein,
And to begin this Christmas tide
With mirth now let us sing.

For the Saviour of all people
Upon this time was born,
Who did from death deliver us,
When we were left forlorn.
(“Poet-Unknown”)

*************

Do You Believe

Do you believe
Or do you feel deceived
I hate to tell you
But the famous Santa is for real
Trust me, he is a big deal!

Santa represents giving
and all things for which we give thanksgiving
His brings joy to many girls and boys
So you see he does bring more than just toys.

We should all practice the spirit of Mr. Claus
But always stop and give a pause
For the blessings that Christmas brings
And be thankful for the simple things.
(“Poet-Catherine Pulsifer”)

*************

Jolly Old Saint Nicholas

Jolly Old Saint Nicholas, lean your ear this way.
Don’t you tell a single soul what I’m going to say?
Christmas Eve is coming soon. Now, you dear old man,
Whisper what you’ll bring to me. Tell me if you can.

When the clock is striking twelve, when I’m fast asleep,
Down the chimney, broad and black, with your pack, you’ll creep.
All the stockings, you will find hanging in a row.
Mine will be the shortest one. You’ll be sure to know.
(“By-Unknown”)

*************

On The Morning

On the Morning of Christ’s Nativity
This is actually the month, and this the happy morn
Wherein the Son of Heav’n’s eternal King,
Of wedded Maid, and Virgin Mother born,
Our great redemption previously mentioned did bring;
For so the holy sages used to sing,
That he, our deadly forfeit should release,
With his, Father works us a continuous piece.

***************

A Christmas Lullaby

Sleep, the baby, sleep! Mom sings:
Heaven’s angels kneel and fold their wings.
Sleep, the baby, sleep!
With swathes of scented hay Thy bed
By Mary’s hand at eve was spread.
Sleep, the baby, sleep!
At nighttime came the shepherds, they
Whom seraphs wakened incidentally.
Sleep, the baby, sleep!
And three kings in the East afar,
Ere dawn came, guided through the star.
Sleep, the baby, sleep.

***************

Practice Jesus

When we practiced Jesus every way,
It’d end up 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,
To ensure that every single day would find us
Increasingly more in sweet accord
With this sweet Jesus-Master, Lord.

Christian Christmas Poems

True Christian Christmas

Christmas isn’t showy gifts
Or glittering decoration;
It’s honoring our Savior, Jesus Christ
In humble adoration.

It’s serving those less fortunate,
Meeting their needs before our own;
It’s making sure at Christmas time
That no one is alone.

It’s taking what we would have spent
On things that no one needs,
And using it to help someone
With service and good deeds.

Our Savior showed us how to live
With charity, faith, and service.
It makes the holidays a joy,
More peaceful, and less nervous.

So let’s remember Christmas is
About our Savior’s birth;
That’s the way to happiness,
The way to peace on earth.
(“By-Joanna Fuchs”)

**************

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.
(“By-Joanna Fuchs”)

Christian Christmas Poems

As A Baby, Jesus Came

As a baby, Jesus came
His home above
He left His throne, and who He was,
To teach us how to love

As a baby, Jesus came,
Wrapped in swaddling cloth;
Willingly took on humanity,
Though He was one with God

As a baby, Jesus came
To one day grow to be
The savior of the human race,
People like you and me

As God’s eternal light
That will never be extinguished,
But forever shine out bright

As a baby, Jesus came
The hope of eternal life,
Reconciling us back to God,
Giving meaning to our lives

As a man, Jesus died,
His blood poured out for all,
Cleansing and forgiving us,
For this, He was called

We thank Him that He came to a babe
And grew to be a man
And for His sacrificial love,
His nailed scarred feet and hands

Through it all, we can live on
With Jesus Christ our Lord
The babe that came that first Christmas
Is what we thank Him for.

****************

Don’t Forget Jesus

Christmas is a special time
To reflect on Jesus Christ,
The wonder of His lowly birth
Brings meaning to our lives

There really is no other reason,
We celebrate this day,
The birth of God’s precious son
And the life, He willingly gave

But so much seems to distract us
In the busyness of our lives,
We lose our focus in all the happenings,
Not knowing, we leave out Christ

We lose sight of the true meaning
As we endlessly rush about,
Trying to find that perfect gift,
Seems to cloud our Saviour out

We need to stop and reflect awhile,
Remembering our precious Lord,
His birth, His life, and sacrifice
And all that He stands for

For though the world may celebrate,
It seems, though, for other reasons,
Let’s keep in mind that Jesus Christ
Is the true meaning of the season.

***************

Can You…?

Can you hear the angels singing?
Can you hear the church bells ringing?
Can you tell who all this is for?
It’s for the birth of Jesus our Lord.
(“By-Kelly Roper”)

A Christmas Carol Poem

The Christ-child lay on Mary’s lap,
His hair was like a light.
(O weary, weary were the world,
But here is all aright.)

The Christ-child lay on Mary’s breast
His hair was like a star.
(O stern and cunning are the kings,
But here the true hearts are.)

The Christ-child lay on Mary’s heart,
His hair was like a fire.
(O weary, weary is the world,
But here the world’s desire.)

The Christ-child stood on Mary’s knee,
His hair was like a crown,
And all the flowers looked up at Him,
And all the stars looked down.
(“By-Gilbert Keith Chesterton”)

If Only

If only every day
Held the spirit of Christmas day
To capture that feeling always
Year-round would be the best way
If only every day
We would be so kind
To our fellow man
Year-round would be the best way.

If only every day
We share and give
So that others may happily live
Year-round would be the best way.

If only every day
We expressed our love
And thanked God above
Year-round would be the best way.
(“By-Catherine Pulsifer”)

Christmas In The City

Give me a light to shine on city streets,
Give me a word to make men live again,
Give me a note of love where hate has been
Give me the grace to be a child again.
Give me Thy Christmas Hope.

Grant me a shrine for Mary’s Child,
Grant me the vision of the Father’s Love,
Grant me the gentle shepherd’s heart,
Grant me humility and love.
Grant me Thy Christmas Grace.

Speak through my lips for all to hear,
Speak from my heart of the Savior’s love
Speak from the deep, repentant depths,
Speak for the fear-filled heart and sore.
Speak of the Peace of God.

Sing in the ranks of heavenly choirs,
Sing in the churches of our reigning Lord,
Sing in the tongues of every land,
Sing in the hearts of all redeemed.
Sing of the Son of God.

Bring in the shepherds from the fields,
Bring in the poor and needy of the earth,
Bring in the wise men of all time,
Bring in the gifts of wisdom, truth, and love.
Bring Him your inmost heart.

Stir up the songs of Christ and hymns of hope,
Stir up thy soul with penitence and grace,
Stir up thy heart to answer love with love,
Stir up all powers in welcome to thy King.
Stir up pure Christmas faith.
(“Poet-Adalbert R. Kretzmann”)

The Stable

I am so glad He was not born
In some rich palace bed.
I am so glad to know it was
A lowly place, instead,
A place where soft-eyed cows and sheep
Were sheltered and fed.

For to the country-born of earth
A stable will ever be
A wholesome place, where night comes down
With its tranquility,
A place of heart’s ease and content
For all who choose to see.

And so I like to think of Him,
First opening His eyes
In that good elemental place
Beneath the friendly skies.
That the men of fields could find Him there,
As well as the great and wise.
(“Poet-Grace Noll Crowell”)

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 Wilder”)

***************

Christmas Tree Alight

We have the loveliest Christmas tree this year;
It’s on the lawn, but very near.
After dark when I went to see
The shining beauty of our tree,
There under branches deep and green
Was the sweetest sight I’ve ever seen!

By a bulb that glowed like a red, red rose,
A chickadee warmed his chilly toes,
Then fluffed his feathers and hid his head
And went to sleep in his nice, warm bed.

When I awake late in the night
And saw the spruce tree still alight,
I snuggled down, happy because I knew
The chickadee had a warm place too.
(“By-Lewis Funderburgh”)

Let’s Go To Meet Baby Jesus

Rejoice everyone for today the child of God is born,
Rejoice, everyone, let us fill the place with bling and adorn.
It does not matter whether we are sinners or saints,
It does not even matter if we are too stubborn to repent.
God’s best creation, baby Jesus, loves us anyway,
The moment when we will unite with him, he’s waiting for that day.
For Baby Jesus is innocent, he is so delicate, so mild,
His heart is so fragile and loving just like a child.
His eyes wander off across the stable in the moonlight so dim,
To greet everyone who has come there to welcome him.
Merry Christmas to you and your family.

***************

“The year is dying in the night;
Ring out, wild bells, and let him die.”
Ring out the old, ring in the new,
Ring, happy bells, across the snow:
The year is going, let him go;
Ring out the false, ring in the true.
(“By-Tennyson”)

***************

Come to earth to taste our sadness
He whose glories knew no end
By his life, he brings us gladness
Our Redeemer Shepherd Friend
Leaving riches without number
Born within a cattle stall
This the everlasting wonder
Christ was born Lord of all.
(“By-Charles Wesley”)

***************

Christmas Season

Christmas season is already in town,
Let us spread love to everyone around us.
Have fun and enjoy with the friends you found,
And everywhere you will hear a laughing sound.
Christmas season is about giving gifts,
Always remember your nephews and niece.
Just recall how much happiness this brings,
For it is always better to give than to receive.
Christmas season is felt by everyone,
So there is no reason for you to be with no one.
Share the joy and love with everyone,
And you will be blessed by the Almighty One.
Christmas season really makes us see How beautiful the world we live in is.
Be contented of what you have and who you are with,
And you will definitely experience happiness and peace.

What child is This

What child is this
That came into my life
To stir up happiness
Amidst all the strife
What child is this
Who wipes all my tears
And when He is close
Conquers my fears
What child grows older
But keeps getting better
What child is this
That breaks every fetter
What child is this
Grown into a man
Who makes me say
“With Him all things I can”
He gave up His life
A great child indeed
He died on the cross
So I could be freed
What child is this
That from this world should part
He is the child
That still lives in my heart
What child is this
Why it’s JESUS, God’s Lamb,
And I can say with great faith
Now His child I am.
(“By-Teri Couture”)

Christmas Poems For Church

Make it Snow!

Christmas Eve, and twelve of the clock
“Now they are all on their knees,”
An elder said as we sat in a flock
By the embers in hearthside ease..!

We pictured the meek mild creatures where
They dwelt in their strawy pen,
Nor did it occur to one of us there
To doubt they were kneeling then.

So fair a fancy few would weave
In these years! Yet, I feel,
If someone said on Christmas Eve,
“Come; see the oxen kneel,

“In the lonely barton by yonder coomb
Our childhood used to know,”
I should go with him in the gloom,
Hoping it might be so.

***************

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
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
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.
(“By-M.S. Lowndes”)

come from You, Lord,
through your grace, your compassion,

In Jesus’ name, we pray, Amen.

Christ Is The Light Of Christmas

Christmas joy and lights aglow;
Christmas songs to warm and cheer
Excitement is on the children’s faces
As anticipation fills the air —

But for some, it can be lonely
When loved ones have passed away,
Memories are all that linger
As the years begin to fade

But Christ’s light should never dim;
It should ever shine out bright
Our ray of hope in this troubled world
Is our joy of eternal light

Christmas, when spent with Jesus,
Can warm our hurting hearts,
For as His light shines within us,
Its glow warms our deepest parts.

***************

At Christmas Time

There’s nothing like Christmas
And woods deep in snow
To make us remember
The dear long ago.

Down life’s weary highway,
Years pass single file,
But deep in us all
Lives a bit of the child.
The same breathless wonder
Floods over us when
The gray skies lose snowflakes
That dance in the wind.

Smoke curling from chimneys,
A white windowpane,
And dear thoughts return
And old joys remain.

The tinkle of sleigh bells
Across a still night,
A warm, shadowed hearth
Whose embers burn bright.

A colorful afghan
Thrown over a chair,
Green holly entwined
Down the length of a stair.

The candlelit church
And the golden bells tell
Of chapters each heart
Remembers so well.

Oh, there’s nothing like Christmas
And woods deep in snow
To make us remember
The dear long ago.
(“By-Grace E. Easley”)

The Hush of Christmas Past

Can you recall the hush of Christmas past?
Think back to when you were a little child,
excited Santa Claus would come at last,
too young to even know you’d been beguiled.
In the shadows of your quiet room, you lay.
Then maybe to your window, you’d tiptoe,
lookout and search the sky for Santa’s sleigh.
But all you’d see were swirling flakes of snow,
And that night, while all your family slept,
you tried to stay awake. Do you recall
the only thing you heard as Sandman crept
upon you was the clock upon the wall?
The hush of Christmas past is never gone.
As long as there are children, it lives on.

****************

Christmas Candles

When the Christ-child comes again
Softly down the street to-night,
Twinkling through the windowpane
Let our candles shed their light.

Though the clouds are dark above
And the golden stars are dim,
We can tell Him of our love
If we set alight for Him.

Oh, the blessed Christ-child dear,
In His robe of shining white,
Let our candles give Him cheer
He passes by tonight!
(“By-Evaleen Stein”)

Christmas Poems For Church

Five Little Bells

Five little bells, hanging in a row.
The first one said, ring me slowly.
The second one said, ring me fast.
The third one said, ring me last.
The fourth one said I’m like a chime.
The fifth one said, ring us all at one time!
