Christmas Challenge: Town

Day 5 of the 2017 Christmas Challenge: Town

Feel free to join in on the challenge at any time!

[Begin scene]

A silent town, the dead of night,

Bethlehem, this quiet sight…


Arriving late, this family new,

The mother tired, her baby due…


Finding no rooms, in which to sleep,

The couple take shelter, among the sheep…


The time has come, a time of joy,

She’s given birth, to a special boy…


Named him Jesus, Emmanuel,

Now go forth, the world to tell.

[End scene]
