      Last month's contest
      WINNER!
      A Manger And A Cross
      In the stars' bright light shepherds hear
      angelic host proclaim the news;
      While unblemished lambs resting near -
      await the Seder of the Jews.

      The shepherds whispered in their hearts
      what John Baptist later thundered:
      "Behold the Lamb of God" - imparts
      a sense of hope, and joy, and wonder.

      O Bethlehem, thou "House of Bread"
      we see thee worthy of thy name;
      There, sleeping in thy manger bed
      the "Bread of Life" this Child became.

      Frankincense and Myrrh -
      Their fragrance fills Thy room;
      Wise men gave to Thee at birth
      perfumes later for Thy tomb.

      The shadow of a cross, we see -
      It falls upon Thy infant face;
      It will later set the sinner free
      This emblem of Thy love and grace.
