Happy Birthday, Jesus!

The Gift of Christmas

What a glorious time of year
When we celebrate the birth
Of a God who loved us so
That He came to live on earth.

Such a wondrous occasion
A holiday so dear,
Even though it’s cold outside
There warmth because God’s near.

But some will have misgivings,
While others dread the season.
In this day of automation,
Do we have good reason?

Think of Mary, mother of Jesus,
Traveling o’er rocky terrain
On a donkey, big with child.
I wonder would she complain?

The Bible explains situations
Mary pondered in her heart.
If hearts were home for Jesus,
Humans could make a new start.

So let Christ in this Christmas,
He’ll fill your soul with joy.
Together let’s give thanks to God
For sending the Savior boy!
