To thank the Lord, our God, for His Gift sent from above.
We celebrate with presents and trees adorned with lights
We know that Jesus Christ was born on that star-lit night.
Everyone is happy. There is caring all around
"Peace on Earth. Goodwill to men," is an ever-present sound.
Yet sometimes, though we don't intend, we lose sight of the reason
The focus shifts away from Christ, at times, throughout the season.
We rush to stores to buy the best for each one on our list.
With endless toys and precious gifts. There's no one we have missed.
Let's not be blinded by the lights and tinsel on our trees.
Let's rejoice at Christmas time and fall down on our knees.
The shepherds kneeled before the Lord and bowed their heads in prayer.
Our Saviour, Christ, was born that night - the news spread everywhere.
So as we gather 'round the tree with friends and family
Do it in His blessed Name for all the world to see.
Thanks be to God for his indescribable Gift!
2 Corinthians 9:15
