When you take Christ out of Christmas
The true meaning is not quite clear;
It's something much more wonderful
To celebrate each year.
 
It's not about St. Nicholas
Who brings joy to girls and boys,
With landing on our rooftops
Toting sacks filled up with toys;
 
Or decorated Christmas trees,
Lit houses on the streets,
The gathered crowds in shopping malls,
Or baking special treats.
 
The true meaning of Christmas day
Needs little preparation,
Which seems to have just faded now
All across the Nation.
 
The day is Christ, our Savior's birth,
God's One and only Son,
A gift so lovingly given us
So redemption could be won!
 
A special gift, this Jesus,
Who God gave to you and me,
Who took upon Him all our sin
When nailed upon that tree.
 
This Christmas tree should remind us
A Savior once was born,
So as you gather 'round yours
On this very special morn',
 
Join hands and say a special prayer
To thank God up above,
For giving us His precious Son,
A gift of Eternal Love!

"And the angel said unto them,
Fear not: for, behold,
I bring you good tidings of great joy,
which shall be to all people.
For unto you is bron this day in the city of David
a Savior, which is Christ the Lord."
Luke 2:10,11
JESUS! . . . Our ONE true source of Joy!
