In the Salesian booklet Glad Tidings of Joy, Delight D. Kilyan shares a Christmas poem called To Honor Him:
“In darkened sky a star shone bright, while angels sang that wondrous night / Of Jesus’ birth in stable dim, that all may come to honor Him.
“To honor Him, our King of Kings, on Christmas Eve, the church bell rings, / And people gather from afar to celebrate that holy star, / Proclaiming Him, our Savior mild, the holy Babe, the dear Christ Child.
“We honor Him with song and light, with holly wreaths and candles bright, / Our homes aglow with Christmas cheer, goodwill abounds this time of year.
“So celebrate with gift and song, but let your spirit all year long / Proclaim His coming, sing His praise, the Savior comes to bless our days.”
Jesus was born in Bethlehem of Judea. (Matthew 2:1)
Keep my soul watchful for Your presence and light in the world, Messiah.
