Pause for Poetry — God’s Gift to Us

Welcome to Pause for Poetry featuring a poem written by my writer-friend, Frances Gregory Pasch.

God’s Gift To Us

by Frances Gregory Pasch

Still cloaked in His divinity,
Christ stepped into humanity.
Encompassed by virginity,
He entered in simplicity.

There was no Christmas greenery,
No pomp, nor fancy scenery,
Just boundless love for you and me…
Christ’s destination—Calvary.

If we’ll believe He set us free,
Christ promises that we will be
With Him for all eternity…
His priceless gift of victory.
