Christmas Story: Twas the night before Jesus

Twas the night before Jesus

Submitted by Union Fork Creek Baptist Church

'Twas the night before Jesus came, when all through the house, not a creature was praying, not one in the house; The Bibles were lain on the shelf without care In hopes that
JESUS would not come there;

Christmas Stories - Jesus
The children were dressing to crawl into bed,
Not once ever kneeling or bowing a head.
And Mom in her rocker with baby on lap
Was watching the Late Show while I took a nap.
When out of the East there arose such a clatter,
I sprang to my feet to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash
Tore open the shutters and threw up the sash!

Christmas Stories - praying
When, what to my wondering eyes should appear
But angels proclaiming that Jesus was here,
With a light like the sun sending forth a bright ray
I knew in a moment this must be

The light of His face made me cover my head
It was Jesus! returning just like He had said.
And though I possessed worldly wisdom and wealth, I cried when I saw Him in spite of myself.

Christmas Stories - angel
In the book of Life which He held in His hand
Was written the name of every saved man.
He spoke not a word as He searched for my name;
When He said "it's not here" my head hung in shame. The people whose names had been written with love He gathered to take to His Father above.

Christmas Stories - Bible
With those who were ready He rose without a sound While all the rest were left standing around.
I fell to my knees, but it was too late;
I had waited too long and thus sealed my fate.
I stood and I cried as they rose out of sight;
Oh, if only I had been ready tonight.

In the words of this poem the meaning is clear;
The coming of Jesus is drawing near.
There's only one life and when comes the last call
We'll find that the Bible was true after all.

Christmas Stories - praying
"It is not for you to know the times or the season, which the Father hath put in his power". Acts 1:7

Jesus is the Reason for the Season.
