Popular Kids Christmas Poems
1. Christmas Child by Mary E. Carpio
Turn your eyes this Christmas
To the Child who was born
He came into the world
Only to find sorrow and scorn
He knew we needed a Savior
To set us free from sin
No other way to redemption
But to open your heart to Him
Remember this Christmas season,
Material things cannot satisfy
They are but temporary
They disappear and die
But the love of our Savior
A gift that lives eternally
He is that brightest Star
Which shines upon the tree!
2. Grandfather Knows by Evaleen Stein
Grandfather says of all things
The silliest he’s heard
Is that some children call things
They’ve never seen, “absurd!”
And have their doubts of true things,
And won’t believe, because
They say, “If you but knew things,
There is no Santa Claus!”
Grandfather says he knows him,
And sees him every year,
And Santa often shows him
The playthings he brings here;
He says, too, Santa told him
If any girls and boys
Laugh at and won’t uphold him,
They’ll not get any toys!
3. Oh Little Child by Roger J. Robicheau
Oh Little child so near the tree
The precious view you clearly see
Adorned in white, a glistened sight
A chilling warmth, it’s nearly night
Excitement grows within each eye
A splendid match, so bright yet shy
You make each wish, each secret part
A ray with God, so fills your heart
Your wants are small, unselfish child
Not to be wrapped, branded or styled
A world of hope, filled full of peace
A caring call, let love increase
Next year this child so wants to be
Back out to watch, this growing tree
What of our wants as time goes by
Will hope and peace and love climb high
