Christmas Verses
for Your Holiday Greeting Cards

Christmas verses for your handmade Christmas cards. When you send Christmas greetings to your family or friends, whether the recipient of your handmade card is a Christian or not, do add a bible verse on the bottom left inside your Christmas greeting card.

Christmas is a time to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ; His coming to the earth to save the world from sin, so it is appropriate that a Christmas verse from the Bible be added to your holiday greetings.

I have added this page of scripture verses here for you to use freely. These verses are all about the birth of Jesus Christ, the reason for His coming to earth, His love for mankind and the circumstances that led to His birth.

Use one of these many Scripture verses and make your Christmas cards very meaningful for you and the recipients.


Highlight the text and right click to copy any verse. Then paste it to your Microsoft Word document or a text document. Change the font and font size and colour and print on card making or scrapbooking paper. Trim and paste inside your handmade card.
