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
