When I think about our celebrating Christmas
It is very disgusting to me
Most children look forward for candy and toys
But to me itís a Sacred Jubilee.
Itís a day set apart to worship
The miraculous birth of our Dear Lord
Our father in Heaven in all of His wisdom
Gave us His Dear Son by His Holy word.
The Shepherds who were attending their flocks
Got the message from the Angels in the sky
Then they left their flocks immediately
And came to Bethlehem to see the reason why.
There was a bright star that guided them
On their way to that Bethlehem Town
And when they finally arrived there
It was the little Child Jesus they found.
Mary His mother and Joseph
Looked after Him for a while
But when He grew to manhood
He taught in His own gracious style.
He went about teaching healing
His people were too stiff necked to understand
So He appointed His twelve Apostles
Then His work really began.
So Christmas is a day of celebration
And not only for candy and toys
And we should teach all of our children
Especially the little girls and boys.
We do not know the exact date
That our Father sent us His Dear Son
But I know that any believing person
Knows our souls He has already won.
I am only interested in the children
Whom God has given us to love
And by instructing them spiritually
About Jesus in Heaven above.
Thatís my thoughts about Christmas
A day of rejoicing and prayer
Because had it not happened
All of our sins would still be there.
