Christmas Poem

Being A Blessing To Others

I went to my regular church last weekend and this poem was given to me by the Lord after I got home. This is how I really felt during the worship service. I hope it will encourage others to examine their lives and strive to do good works for the Kingdom.

What Can I Give?

Published: December 2018

I went to church on Christmas morn to hear the angels sing.
My heart was lifted with every chorus; the rafters, they did ring.
I sang along with joy in my heart, the greatest sound I've ever heard.
From "O Holy Night" to "What Child is This?" I cherished every word.

I celebrated the King's lowly birth; I shouted and danced about.
Then came along a "Little Drummer Boy," and I knew I was without.
What had I given the babe this year? A panic crossed my mind.
I tried to think of what I had given, but there was none to find.

Did I find a child and clothe him well? Did I seek a widow to bless?
Did I go to someone sick in their bed and try to ease their death?
Did I ask a sinner to say a prayer or tell him the Good News?
Did I give a beggar something to eat or at least buy him some shoes?

I bowed my head as the drummer boy played; my tears started to fall.
I didn't even give Him my best, let alone give Him my all.
So this Christmas, Jesus, I bring you my drum, the very beat of my heart.
I ask Your forgiveness, for things undone; it's the only place I can start.

This a very touching poem telling the perfect way to begin Christmas day. The greatest songs in the world heard on this special day celebrating Jesus, especially this perfect day. Songs bring back memories when I was a child. Lovely songs, words of Christ’s birth, how special this season is. Remembering Christ all year long is what we do at Christmas time too.
