~ Heaven Came Down ~
by Danette Kettwich
Heaven came down and hope touched the earth
In human form a new baby's birth
Mother embracing the only Son of God
To walk among us on this earthly sod.
Small little fingers held his mother's hand
Would someday heal our desperate land
Counting each baby finger, each baby toe
Not knowing someday they'd let him go.
They bore witness to the purest of light
Surrounded by Angelic Presence so bright
In heavenly rapture they sang of great joy
Has come to the earth as a new baby boy
Music enveloped in harmonic rejoice
Melodies flowing from the purest of voice
Written long ago in the scripture was laid
Hope restored Faith in the promises made
The promise packaged in complete sacrifice
The perfect gift willing to lay down his life
Peace on earth we whole heartedly proclaim
Our songs and our faith to His Holy name.
