The Legend Of The Christmas Rose

The Legend Of The Christmas Rose
Is A Charming Tale Of A Little Shepherd Girl Named Madelon



As Madelon Tended To Her Sheep One Cold And Wintry Night
Wise Men And Shepherds Passed By Madelon's Snow Covered Field
They Were Bearing Gifts For The Christ Child

Following Behind Them

Madelon Saw The Magi Present Gold
Myrrh
And Frankincense To The Baby

Even The Humble Shepherds
Had Brought Fruits
Honey
And Doves To Give To The Babe
But Madelon Had Nothing
Not Even A Simple Flower For The Newborn King

Standing Outside The Stable Where Jesus Had Been Born
Poor Madelon Wept
Wishing That She Had A Gift She Could Carry To The Infant







A Watching Angel Took Pity On Madelon
And Caused The Snow At The Feet Of The Small Girl To Vanish
This Revealed A Most Beautiful White Flower
Whose Petals Were Tipped With Pink Formed By The Angel From The Tears
Which Had Fallen From The Eyes Of The Little Shepherdess

Overjoyed
Madelon Presented Her Gift At The Manger Of The Baby Jesus
Her Gift Of The Christmas Rose
