For All 🎄

by Luisa Kay Reyes

To a world that is sordid and cold
Came a warmth that is purer than gold.
Amongst leaders that plunder and take
Entered He who bestows and equilibrates.

Scoffing the seekers of personal gain
Was born He who, with goodness, does reign.
So to a land that is burdened with strife
Arrived The King of eternal life.

Offering curing forgiveness and healing
The calm of his manger is appealing.
Since He values with great magnanimity
The wholesome with inner nobility.

And honored by those who are wise
On Christmas was given the ultimate prize;
Which isn’t reserved for the privileged few
But for all who with Jesus, their hearts do renew.
