Messiah in a Manger

By Catherine L. Balk, Cresco

Baby Jesus’ hands reaching out to you and me;

Lovingly for everyone to see.

Children’s eyes gazing so bright,

As it’s Christmas — what a delight!

For the reason God became man;

Was to save us as only he can.

Dying on the cross, was the plan;

Jesus cannot forget one lost lamb.
