Parson Mac’s Muse: Since Jesus Came

Merry Christmas to each and every one of you dear readers!

It’s been two thousand years or so
since Jesus came to earth.
Two thousand years have come and gone
since our dear Savior’s birth.
And this old world e’re since that day,
has never been the same.
Nor, will it ever be again
since Jesus came.

T’was not the kind of entrance
one might expect from God.
Those expecting royalty have
found it more than odd.
That the Sovereign of the universe
would be so meek… so mild…
That he would come to all of us
a poor, woodworker’s child.

Isaiah told us long ago
he’d not be much to see.
A tender shoot amidst parched ground
is all that he would be.
And He would be despised by us
and He’d know grief… and pain…
So… we have one who understands us
since Jesus came.

Jesus lived (and died) in ways
that help us all live better.
The examples that he left to us
make each of us a debtor.
To emulate in every way
our Savior’s loving heart.
So in blessed fellowship with God
We can have a gracious part.

It’s been 2000 years or so
since Jesus came to earth.
2000 years have come and gone
since our dear Savior’s birth.
And this ole’ heart, e’re since that day
has never been the same
Nor, will it ever be again…

…since Jesus came.
