As I look all around, I’m reminded a bit
By those celebrating the joys of Christmas
The sellers & shoppers & stores all alike
Window displays of Christmas without Christ
How could this be? I said to myself
Overlooking the One who supplies all of our help
Why don’t children know the true meaning of this day
How do you explain it? And what do you say?
When we’re more concerned with gadgets and gifts
Maybe we’re the ones taking Christ out of Christmas
I challenge you to ask yourself one simple thing
To each one of you, what does Christmas really mean?
Would you still be joyous with no Christmas bells?
Would you still celebrate with no money for holiday sales?
What reason to smile without garland & bows
How about the birth of our Savior, from which all blessings flow
But if I don’t give presents what will everyone say?
How would I explain with no gifts to give on Christmas Day?
2 Philippians Verses 9&10
Explain how God took the name of Jesus and exalted Him
Above every other name in Heaven and on Earth
Because Jesus, our Lord, is the Last and the First
It is at His name that every knee shall bow and every tongue shall confess
That He is the reason that we have been blessed
For our Savior has paid the ultimate price
Born on this day a living sacrifice
He came down from Heaven so that we may live
Yea, it’s nice to get presents, but God wants us to give
Give thanks & honor & glory & praise
Keeping the Christ in Christmas, today and always
Wishing you and yours a very Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year
