Christmas is so
Than buying gifts in oneís favorite store,
At a gaily decorated shopping mall!
Christmas is a time of peace, joy, and love,
And remembering that God above,
Sent His only Son to save us all!
ĎTis all right to hang the holly,
And by all means be jolly!
We of all people certainly have every reason!
But, during the festivities and the fun,
Letís not forget Godís precious Son!
For He is why we celebrate this season!
We must share with our children the wonderful
Of how the Lord of Glory,
Was born in a stable and laid in a lowly manger!
But, then let us proceed and tell,
Of his death, burial, and resurrection as well,
Lest the Saviour be to them just a stranger!
As we partake of the Christmas meal,
Deep within our hearts we should feel,
Gratitude for all the things God has done.
For a wealth of family and friends,
His love that never ends,
And the greatest Gift of all Jesus, Godís Son!
