Innocent baby, lying in a manger, angels watching singing lullabies.
The big shining twinkling star provided light for the wise men as they travelled to worship by his cradle. Little baby Jesus lay in hay as the animals looked down on him in adoration. Alas a plot was afoot to put out this new innocent light that was shining. In darkness the family fled into the night, seeking sanctuary. My sweet loving baby Jesus, from birth some loved you and worshiped you as the Messiah and King while others plotted your death, that blood shall be spilled and the cry of a mother would be heard through the night.

Merry Christmas baby Jesus thank you for shedding your blood so that i may have life. Thank you for the light you shown in the darkness of Christmas day. Merry Christmas my Lord Jesus. Merry Christmas one and all.
