The deaths of Christmas

A child is born in Bethlehem without a sound
The wrath of God lies dead upon the ground
The power of forgiveness comes into the world
And breaks into small pieces all the bonds of old

And all the powers of hell must flee from the childs’ sight
Their powers of doom destroyed in this one night
The thunder and destruction upon unbelievers
Lies dead and gone because of our redeemer

For this his power, and his sacrifice
A song of love is rising towards the skies
Erased is love only for chosen few
A child is born, all the world to renew

No single birth has changed the world so much
The imprint of one man, his holy touch
Remember this, a birth of love and light
And all that now lies dead because of Christmas night

Author's Note
I am not even very religious these days, but the story of Jesus has always inspired me, independently of all the Church stuff and complex theology.
