O Night Divine

o-night-divine

Mariah Carey O Holy Night

On this very special night

In the east appeared a star

Shimmering with a brilliant light

Leading wise men from afar


While shepherds hear the angels sing

Glad tidings from heaven above

Announcing the birth of the King of Kings

Sent to earth to show His Father’s love


While in a manger filled with hay

The Christ was given to mankind

With nowhere else for him to lay

On that blessed holy night divine

Cheryl,

This is quite lovely. It depicts the event perfectly.

I often wonder what a sight that was to see the star in the sky.

Great write.

Christmas is coming, but I do not know how to celebrate because as of now, I have no job. My bank savings is not easily diminishing.

Yes Christmas is coming I’m starting early.

Thank you for reading.

Elijah A Alexander Jr from Washington DC on November 25, 2019:

Somehow we always want to retell the Christian Story in verse, with each one there's a new twist but the meaning and truth is always there. Thanks for sharing your inspired version.

John Hansen from Gondwana Land on November 25, 2019:

A lovely poetic description of the original "Christmas."
