It is Christmas season again
A season of celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ
Heaven’s gift has come to man
Mortal fate rests
Within tiny hallowed hands
Shepherds singing, a shining star
Kings bearing gifts from afar
A scene of serene glory
The weight of a holy hush
The meaning of heaven’s story
It was God who brought Christmas gift to us
Who would recall the power of that day
At the time when he was led away
Bearing a crown, a robe, and fateful wounds
Was he not the gift from heaven’s womb?
Shall we turn from that holy day
And walk away unchanged?
Do we allow it to envelope our souls
Only to let it slowly slip away?
Through plastic, tinsel, parties and gifts,
Shopping, planning, and Christmas lights lit
Can the simple gift be heard or seen
Or does it quietly fade behind holiday sheen?
Let us not forget that he loves us so
He loves us too much to let us go
He sent a plan with his sacrifice
To forgive and cleanse and give us life
Embrace the greatest gift of all
Merry Christmas .
