Hope arises

Zechariah hopes
faithfully serving
as he waits for the Messiah.

Elizabeth waits
anticipating John's birth
praising God's goodness.

Mary expectant
a miraculous promise
of fearful wonder.

Joseph still ponders
the angel's startling message
of reassurance.

Shepherds soon rejoice
in heaven's bright announcement
of the Saviour's birth.

Magi, wondering
at the strangeness of a star,
are called to journey.

These strange happenings
echo down the centuries
with undeniable truth.

The ageless story
brought to life in humble hearts
speaks eternal love.

Hope kindles again
in hearts laid low by darkness
this Christmas season.
