G is for God, who from heaven above sent down to mankind the Son of His love. H is for Herod, whose murderous scheme was told to Joseph in a nocturnal dream.  I is for Immanuel, “God with us,” for Christ brought man back to the Father’s house. J is for Joseph so noble and just, obeying God’s word with absolute trust. K is for King. A true king He would be, coming in power and authority. L is for Love that He brought down to earth God enfleshed in lowly birth. M is for Mary, His mother so brave, counting God faithful and mighty to save. N is for Night, when the Savior was born for nations of earth and people forlorn. O is for Omega, meaning “the last;” He’s eternal present, future and past.

R is for Rejoice.  The sorrow of sin is banished forever when Jesus comes in. S is for Savior.  To be this He came; the angel of God assigned Him His name. T is for Tidings of joy, not of danger, telling of Him who was laid in a manger.  U is for Us, to whom Jesus was given to show us the way and take us to heaven. V is for Virgin, foretold by the sage, God’s revelation on prophecy’s page. W is for Wonderful, His works and His words, the King of all Kings, the Lord of all Lords. X is for Christ. It’s X in the Greek, Anointed, Messiah, mighty, yet meek. Y is for Yes, called God’s Yes in His Word; God’s answer to all is Jesus the Lord. Z is for Zeal as it burned in Christ’s heart. Lord, by thy Spirit to us zeal impart.

 “For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given… and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counselor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.” Isaiah 9:6.

Merry Christmas!!
