May this coming Christmas Season,
Bring to the world sweet peace and joy,
As we gather in love to celebrate
A story told of the birth of a baby Boy.
Christmas decorations are everywhere,
Stockings, trees and twinkling lights,
Weary shoppers seeking last minute gifts,
Hoping Christmas day will bring delight.
Keep in your hearts the reason,
Each year as we celebrate,
The birth of the Christ Child,
Not gifts to accumulate.
Teach your children of this Baby,
How He was born filled with such love,
He gave His life upon the Cross,
And He prepared us a home Above.
In a lowly stable among the animals,
This was sweet Baby Jesus' bed,
Mary wrapped her little One in swaddling
News of the Saviour's birth quickly spread.
Angels sang in the skies above,
The people in the land heard,
Wise men traveled to give Him gifts,
The Saviour's birth had occurred.
Christmas is an exciting time,
Most celebrated of any Season,
Pause for a moment to recall,
Jesusí Miraculous Birth is the reason.
May your day be filled with peace and joy,
Let the light of the Lord shine,
Follow His guidance each passing day,
You'll find peace and joy Divine.
