Christmas is the time for celebrations and festivities. It is also about the worship of Christ and humanity. Reciting or reading religious Christian poems is all the more apt during this time. You can read them quietly in your house, post the morning and evening prayer session. Reciting some of the lines in the church is also very potent.
Though the Christmas poems by famous poets contain lines about Christmas and its celebrations, they also have an oneness with God. The lines carry with it simple words and images, and profound wisdom. Reciting them aloud or in your mind gives you a sense of calm.
Let us go through some of the extracts from some of the best religious Christmas poems.
Best Religious Christmas Poems.
1. Jesus Is the Reason by Joanna Fuchs
In Bethlehem, God gave to us
The source of Christmas joy;
A star shown on a miracle:
The virgin birth of a boy.
He was born both God and man,
A Savior for us all,
The way to get to our heavenly home,
If we just heed His call.
So as we shop and spend and wrap
And enjoy the Christmas season,
Let’s keep in mind the sacred truth:
Jesus is the reason.
2. Christmas Trees by Robert Frost
THE CITY had withdrawn into itself
And left at last the country to the country;
When between whirls of snow not come to lie
And whirls of foliage not yet laid, there drove
A stranger to our yard, who looked the city,
Yet did in country fashion in that there
He sat and waited till he drew us out
A-buttoning coats to ask him who he was.
He proved to be the city come again
To look for something it had left behind
And could not do without and keep its Christmas.
He asked if I would sell my Christmas trees;
My woods—the young fir balsams like a place
3. The Christmas Night by Lucy Maud Montgomery
Wrapped was the world in slumber deep,
By seaward valley and cedarn steep,
And bright and blest were the dreams of its sleep;
All the hours of that wonderful night-tide through
The stars outblossomed in fields of blue,
A heavenly chaplet, to diadem
The King in the manger of Bethlehem.
4. Christmas by John Betjeman
The holly in the windy hedge
And round the Manor House the yew
Will soon be stripped to deck the ledge,
The altar, font and arch and pew,
So that the villagers can say
‘The church looks nice’ on Christmas Day.
