O Little Town of Bethlehem

O Little Town of Bethlehem “2 But you, Bethlehem Ephrathah, though you are small among the clans of Judah, out of you will come for me one who will be ruler over Israel, whose origins are from of old, from ancient times.” Micah 5:2 NIV O Little Town of Bethlehem, Prophesied from ancient times of old, As the place where Christ was to be born; Worshiped with frankincense, myrrh and gold. The simple birth was unnoticed By most who lived there. They didn’t see the bright star in the heavens— Of this birth were unaware. If it hadn’t been for the angels, Who visited the shepherds that night, And for the wise men who sought Him, His birth would have lacked sight. His own hadn’t studied their Scriptures, So were ignorant at the time, That in the Little Town of Bethlehem, Salvation was delivered as human yet divine. God uses the simplest things To confound the so-called wise; Pagans to announce a Savior— Only God Himself could devise. O Little Town of Bethlehem, How important you became; Not important to men on earth, But prophesied by God by name. O Little Town of Bethlehem, No inn could you provide For the most important birth In the whole of this world wide. Although you were considered insignificant, You were chosen by heaven To be the place of Jesus’ birth— The greatest gift to man God-given. © Copyright 2012 Maureen LeFanue From my Christmas Edition of Poetry to Touch Your Heart & Soul [Christmas Edition]
