A-Poem-a-Day Until Christmas...
SPOTLESS LITTLE LAMBS
Before their drowsy eyes, during watch, last night
some shepherds witnessed a startling sight—
The sky came alight! There were fluttering wings
hallelujahs and so many splendored things!
Angelic hosts proclaimed Our Messiah’s birth
with “Fear not!” and “Glorias” and joyful mirth,
so this morning from that field in Bethlehem
they set off to laud the Infant Son of HaShem.
Without defect or blemish, the shepherd’s pride,
spotless little lambs trotted close by their side.
When the shepherds and sheep came to the birthplace
Mary and Joseph welcomed them, face to face.
Each shepherd bowed down before the Lamb of God;
the lambs drew close to Him, but that wasn’t odd
for there was a link that united them all
in God’s marvelous plan to save the world.
All of the lambs were destined for sacrifice—
the spotless wooly lambs and God’s Lamb, the Christ!
We’re grateful for the LOVE of the great I AM;
Atonement’s achieved at the Cross of His Lamb!
