The essentiality of Christian poems to Christianity

Christianity is one of the oldest and most accepted faiths all over the world with a multitude of customs and beliefs that have been established since its inception. Apart from this, it is also one of the most exploited religions; exploited in a good way though. The fusion of this religion with various art forms like sculptures, artistry, murals, poetry has led to the further development of these creativities. Taking poetry for instance, traditional Christian poems are one of the most popular even today. These have left a mark on the people as they not only appear as well thought rhymes they also have another deeper side to them.

This deeper meaning is what helps us associate or even bring the teachings of Christianity into our lives. While many of these Christian poems are fairly simple and very catchy, others are mainly remembered for their true essence. These poems and verses are sung at various festivals that are celebrated in Christianity. The most popular of these poems are sung around the twelve days of Christmas that start from the 25th of December till 6th of January. Christmas has played a role of paramount substance when it comes to popularizing or say, immortalizing these poems. These are sung, along with the carols, at various churches by the choirs, recited at the cathedral squares and are very popular in the missionary circles.

Apart from this, other marked days like Easter and Good Fridays also have their share of poetry written on them. Another chief day whose record is often mentioned in these compositions is the day of the Epiphany. This is the day when the three wise men, commonly known as the Magi, found the Lord Jesus in the manger where He was born to Mother Mary. The sightings of the starry skies, the Magi making their way and the final meeting is very beautifully and aptly described in many a poems. Not only are these poems restricted to celebrations but they are also followed elsewhere.

The poems are also very popular as a quintessential part of the school curriculum, mainly the lower grade students, where they help the young to learn the virtues, of love, sharing and assisting their kith and kin, which form the foundation of the Christian religion. The kids learn these values of the Christian religion much faster in this way rather than forcing them through constant bickering to do this and that. The poems also have a longer lasting impression on them and most do not forget the words of these verses even when they grow older.
