A Child Is Born

A message written on a wall

‘Monica, I love you’

Survived the years of darkness

Prison cell

The writer tortured disappeared

How we will never know

But the words he wrote are living yet

With love it is ever so


A massacre in Derbyshire

Too awful to relate

A mother and three children

A man so filled with hate

We hardly know the horrors

That happen in our world

But viciousness is everywhere

Is God so very cold?


I only know the story

That began on Christmas night

A child is born to save us

And put enmity to flight

They crucified him for it

A cradle led to cross

And we can follow every day

And redeem what seems so lost
