A Christmas poem

Emmanuel

by Angela Alaimo O’Donnell

From the cave of darkness
a baby comes to light.

In the nick of time,
eternity tonight.

In a world of error
a perfect child is birthed.

In the midst of terror,
peace arrives on earth.

In the chill of winter
dawns this blazing son.

To a world of sinners
comes this sinless one.

In a land of chaos
speaks this single Word

whose voice can raise the dead,
whose promise can be heard.

Even as he cries
sleepers stir beneath the sod

for nothing is impossible
with God.
