Adoration of the Shepherds

First to behold Him

Shepherds knelt in adoration

Impoverished throne, straw-lined manger

Baby King was born

~

Emmanuel, “God with us”

Savior of world estranged

From Creator…desperate for

Light of Hope, Peace

~

Child wears humility’s crown

Yet He holds universe

In tiny hands; salvation

For souls, hearts’ balm

~

Brilliant star led shepherds

To young Lord…perhaps

They heard Him crying:

“Sheep” know, follow Voice
