THE DONKEY, LAMB, AND COW
Poetry by M. Linda Steffey

Among the stable's animals
He came not as a stranger
For He was loving gentleness
Lying in His manger...

They knew He was their friend
With His Halo shinning bright..
And they quietly stood around Him
On that first Christmas night...

The Donkey, Lamb and Cow
With big, brown shinning eyes
Silently in awe of Him...
As His Star blazed the skies!

Lord Jesus loved His Creatures
At His birth He drew them near
His presence gave them Peace of mind
Angel's voices they could hear...

Born into this hate-filled world
For Mankind's heart to cure...
Like Him, His lovely Creatures are
Loving innocent, pure...

In eyes of His Creatures
There glows His Sacred Flame
Babes and stable animals
And wild places know His name...

Peoples in a distant land
The Donkey, Lamb and Cow
Pray for Peace on Christmas Eve
Forever, tomorrow....now....
