True Christian Christmas
Christmas isn’t showy gifts
Or glittering decoration;
It’s honoring our Savior, Jesus Christ
In humble adoration.
It’s serving those less fortunate,
Meeting their needs before our own;
It’s making sure at Christmas time
That no one is alone.
It’s taking what we would have spent
On things that no one needs,
And using it to help someone
With service and good deeds
Our Savior showed us how to live
With charity, faith and service.
It makes the holidays a joy,
More peaceful, and less nervous.
So let’s remember Christmas is
About our Savior’s birth;
That’s the way to happiness,
The way to peace on earth.
Jesus is the Reason
In Bethlehem, God gave to us
The source of Christmas joy;
A star shown on a miracle:
The virgin birth of a boy.
He was born both God and man,
A Savior for us all,
The way to get to our heavenly home,
If we just heed his call.
So as we shop and spend and wrap
And enjoy the Christmas season,
Lets’ keep in mind the sacred truth:
Jesus is the reason.
