by Paul Mayes Jamar
When the world seemed bleak, Three wise men came to seek The Christ Child in Bethlehem In a lowly manger dark and dim. Then a great light appeared up high To many of Earth’s wanderers, passing by. Is today the same or different? Living in a bleak world lost and bent. Yet Jesus gives hope abundantly And salvation to many, plus tranquility. Wise men and women today seek Him For freedom of their sin so dim. We travel a dark and dreary life In search of an end to our strife. Jesus Christ is our great beginning Of spiritual blessings and an end to sinning. The end of life for us Jesus Freaks Is gaining bliss in Heaven’s streets. Seek Jesus out today, and you will say “Hallelujah” as the angels praise Jesus every day.
