In honor of Christmas I wanted to share a poem that I learned when I was about 10. It may not be correct word for word since I cannot find it anywhere so I’m writing it from memory. I know I’m a little late, but hey I’m Ukrainian-American we celebrate Christmas on both December 25th and January 7th (Russian Orthodox Christmas). I do not know who wrote this poem, I don’t even remember which one of my Sunday school teachers gave it to me to learn, but all these years later I still remember it.

Mary had the little Lamb
Who lived before His birth;
Self-existent Son of God
From heaven He came to earth.

Mary had the little Lamb;
See Him in yonder stall.
Virgin born, Son of God,
To save man from the fall.

Mary had the little Lamb,
Obedient Son of God,
Everywhere the Father led
His feet were sure to trod.

Mary had the little Lamb,
Crucified upon a tree;
The rejected Son of God,
He died to set men free.

Mary had the little Lamb;
Men placed Him in a grave
Thinking they were done with Him;
To death He was no slave.

Mary had the little Lamb,
Ascended now is He;
All work on earth is ended,
Our Advocate to be.

Mary had the little Lamb –
Mystery to behold!
From the Lamb of Calvary
A lion will unfold.

When the Day Star comes again,
Of this be very sure:
It won’t be with Lamb-like silence,
But with a Lion’s roar.
