This tiny piece of paper goes out to all my friends
As this Holiday called Christmas
Brings this year to an end.
It's now a time of hustle
Shopping bags and mistletoe
Putting up your tree, the lights,
And fighting traffic to and fro.
It's Christmas carols and Christmas cards,
It's wrapping gifts and food,
It's saying "Hi" to Santa
That puts us in a festive mood.
But amongst the cheery crowds,
Decorations and the snow,
Lies a very special birthday
Few remember, and some don't even know.
The reason for the season
Is the birth of Someone's Son,
In buying all your presents
Did you remember to buy Him one?
He wouldn't want a razor
Or a fifty dollar tie,
A brand new tool from Sears, heck no
He's not your ordinary guy.
It's Somebody's birthday
But no need to fill that cart
For the gift that you should give Him
Is right inside your heart.
And Christmas is the holiday
When our hearts are filled with Peace
What if we gave that gift all year
At every birthday feast?
Can you imagine having Christmas cheer
With everyone you meet?
Sounds kind of like His birthday wish
Is really ours to keep.
So here is hoping that your Christmas
Is as beautiful and bright
As the stars that shone on Jesus
On that cold December night.
