Miracles at the Birth of Christ

By Isaac Watts, 1674-1748

The King of Glory sends his Son
To make his entrance on this earth;
Behold the midnight bright as noon,
And heav’nly hosts declare his birth!

About the young Redeemer’s head
What wonders and what glories meet!
An unknown star arose, and led
The eastern sages to his feet.

Simeon and Anna both conspire
The infant Savior to proclaim;
Inward they felt the sacred fire,
And blessed the Babe, and owned his name.

Let Jews and Greeks blaspheme aloud,
And treat the holy Child with scorn;
Our souls adore th’ eternal God,
Who condescended to be born.

  1. This is a very nice poem by Isaac and dated way back in the 17th century. He is a great believer of God and has this in writing as a proof. Hope this will inspire us and continue believing in Him.
    Kenneth Copeland
