Conquering Child

This post was written in 15 minutes.
I have never tried the Villanelle form before and I tried to do this one in the 15 minutes. Be merciful, it may be a little rough but it was fun to stretch in a new form.

The empty grave shines brightly on the child
In manger laying hopeful in the dark
The conquering king who's born an infant mild

The shepherds are amazed and quite beguiled
By angels singing and to whom they hark
The conquering king who's born an infant mild

Though all around Him hist'ry will be wild
And men will seek to leave their own great mark
The empty grave shines brightly on the child

In infant we to God are reconciled
He took our sin and blots out every mark
The conquering king who's born an infant mild

From birth to death by many much reviled
And thought by some to be in death and dark
The empty grave shines brightly on the child
The conquering king who's born an infant mild
