While the World Failed to Notice by Raymond A. Foss

While the world failed to notice
the king, our savior, born, placed in a manger bed
no room for his parents in the inn
foreigner, stranger, in the land of his ancestors
the people unaware, failing to see
his star, above them, guiding others
ready to change history
Shepherds, angels,
the animals only
witnesses to the divine birth
the one from the beginning
the one foretold long ago
into the world, God incarnate
coming while the world was too busy
wrapped up in the noise of life
unaware Christ had come into the world
