Based on the Animal Parable Bible Story, Kirsi, The Little Lost Lamb is about a lamb that is determined to see baby Jesus. Facing friend and foe, she makes her way to Bethlehem and discovers that finally seeing Jesus was well worth the journey.

Here is the verse, along with the Christmas story in the Gospels, that inspired this poem and story:

Come near to God and he will come near to you. — James 4:8 NIV


Kirsi, The Little Lost Lamb

By Harrison Woodard

Once there was a little lamb

With fleece completely white

She left to visit Bethlehem

In the middle of the night.

A baby had been born

Announced the heavenly throng,

“Come see the new King

And join our joyful song!”

Kirsi trotted into the dark

She had to see this sight

God’s Son was here on earth

Here, to provide us light.

Bravely facing peril

Friend and foe alike

Kirsi made it to Bethlehem

Where was the Holy tike?

Kneeling at a distance

Outside the cold stable

Kirsi meekly waited,

“Would she be able?”

Mary saw the little lamb

And bid her come near

“Come see Baby Jesus

There’s nothing to fear.”

Where are you going?

What do you want to see?

Are you looking for Jesus

Like Kirsi and me?
