Christmas Acrostics and Alphabet Poems

Acrostics are poems in which a particular letter of each line spells out a special message. In our simple acrostics, it is the initial letter of each line of the verse which forms a word significant to the festive season. Alphabet or ABC poems are easier to understand, with the each line of the poem beginning with a successive letter of the alphabet.

Candle light of beauty
Adorning church and alter
None excluded from Christ’s love
Darkness brightly conquered
Light of Christ illuminating
Everlasting light of life


Christmas Alphabet

Angels from on high
Behold we bring news
Christ is coming
Do not be afraid
Emmanuel is coming
Follow yonder star
Go to Bethlehem
Hosanna God be praised

In the town of Bethlehem
Jesus was born
Kneeling shepherds before him
Lowing beasts in attendance
Magi from the east
Noel, noel, noel

On the first morning
Peace came to the world
Quelling fear and pain
Rekindling the light
Saviour son of God
The prince of peace was born
Uniting the world

Verily the most
Wondrous of times
Xmas festival of love
Yule tide of good will
Zion brought to earth

Anticipation keenly felt, as the
Special day grows near
