Here is the poem Faith wrote:
The Road to Bethlehem
The road that leads to Bethlehem is cold as winter snow
But underneath a mantle blue there shines a holy glow
The donkey’s breath makes frosty clouds that call before the mind
The fragrant incense burning in the temple left behind
In ever-watchful vigil stands the man who fosters God
Helping, aiding, always near, wherever they have trod
The city’s lights are warm and gold, inviting trav’lers in
But none will lodge the weary souls who bring a babe from Heav’n
A barn becomes the hallowed place where Love comes down to earth,
A sanctuary consecrated by the virgin birth.
Though kings and princes reign and lofty empires rise to power
No regent is more mighty than the baby born that hour.
