The Holy Family Born In David’s City

Last updated on December 28, 2020

Once In David’s city royal
Emmanuel, in a simple manger
born to give his all
Lies helpless in his mother’s arms.

Joseph silent and adoring
with strength and guiding light
soon will lead his treasured family
away from Herod’s evil might.

Hidden life in Nazareth beckons
There to live a playful childhood
All the while his heart awakens
To His Father’s loving will.

A retired Catholic teacher with a freelance writing stint, I love playing the best game on earth, hockey, or paddling kayaks on a river, lake, or ocean. My home is in the heart of Christ, held in the arms of His Mother who accompanies me when I receive the Eucharist. My seven kids range from 21 to 38 years old.
