‘Christ Our Savior Is Born’

 
Throughout these murky days
of such trials and tribulations
people going berserk to buy
the latest toys and gizmos
let’s take this moment and
pay tribute for the reason of
 this grand and joyous season
and, lest I forget, I must remind you
one very special person will pay acolade
since you see, even Santa takes a moment
to give thanks for this sacred night as well
…when…
‘Christ Our Savior Is Born’
 
…I’m sure you must see, my friends
without Him—we would not be…
 
Nor would the sun shine brightly at all
and the moonlights glow would not exist
darkness all around, and misery would reign
 
There’d be no green grass of home
or any crops growing in the fields
the butterflies would never flutter
no cows grazing—not a single moo
 
A brand-new life would never be born
and kisses for dad would remain a mystery
mothers could never kiss a single boo-boo away
 
There would be no Grandma’s laps to sit on, or
Grandpa telling stories of what used to be
 
Most tragically of all, I must point out
there would be no Lord to worship
and just let me repeat once more
there would be no you and me
 
…so, I ask you please…
 
Throughout these murky days
of such trials and tribulations
people going berserk to buy
the latest toys and gizmos
let’s take this moment and
pay tribute for the reason of
 this grand and joyous season
and, lest I forget, I must remind you
one very special person will pay acolade
since you see, even Santa takes a moment
to give thanks for this sacred night to be
…when…
‘Christ Our Savior Is Born’
