Religious Christmas Poems to Inspire:
Awake, glad heart!
Get up and sing!
It is the birth-day of thy King.
The Sun doth shake
Light from his locks,
and all sorts of way
Breathing perfumes, doth spice the day. Henry Vaughan
The time draws near the birth of Christ;
The moon is hid; the night time is still;
The Christmas bells from hill to hill.
Answer one another in the mist. Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Rise, happy morn;
Draw forth the cheerful day from night:
O Father, touch the east,
And lightweight the light that shone
When Hope was born. Alfred, Lord Tennyson
Break forth, O beauteous heavenly light,
And usher in the morning;
O shepherds, shrink not with afright,
But hear the angel’s warning.
This Child, now weak in infancy,
Our confidence and joy will be,
The power of Satan breaking,
Our peace eternal making. Johann Rist
What comfort by him do we win,
Who made himself the prince of sin,
To create us heirs of glory!
To see this Babe, all innocence,
A martyr born within our defence,
Can man forget the story? Ben Jonson
No more let sins and sorrows grow,
Nor thorns infest the floor;
He comes to make His blessings flow
Far because the curse is found.
He rules the planet with truth and grace;
And helps make the nations prove
The glories of His righteousness,
And wonders of His Love. Isaac Watts
