What Wonders God Has Done!
Luke 2: 8-15
Angels soaring to the earth,
At faster-than-light speeds,
Got to get there with Good News,
First the shepherds will receive.
An angel hovers over,
The Message, with evidence, delivers.
“Don’t be afraid!” he says.
It calms their awestruck quivers.
Then the whole band appears.
“Glory to God in the Highest . . .”
They praise God saying this.
Then all is quiet.
As fast as the angels came,
Now off they rapidly fly.
His birth Message given.
They quickly disappear from the sky.

The first telegram was sent by the son of a minister, Samuel Morse, from Washington, D.C. to Baltimore, Maryland on May 24, 1844. He sent the message – “What Hath God Wrought!” [What Wonders God Has Done! See the Holy Bible – Numbers 23:23]
Another succinct Message was from the angels to the shepherds showing God’s wonders in sending His Son, Jesus Christ.
