Baby Jesus by Kariuki wa Nyamu



Baby Jesus

the greatest gift

that God ever gave Mankind

Your presence in our hearts

this Christmas

is indeed precious and priceless gesture

and that’s why on this merry day

I can’t help but welcome you

into my mind, heart and soul

and cleanse me all

sins seen and unseen.
