A velvet sky, a starry night,
Blankets of snow, twinkles of light.
Sounds of music fill the air,
Gifts of love, wrapped in care.
Love ones gather from far and near,
To celebrate this time of year.
Behold each one face to face,
In all their wonder, all their grace.
Bubbles of laughter, echoes of joy,
All began with one small boy.
Born in a manger, lying in hay,
Changed the world that first Christmas day.
Ever so humble, this king was He,
Came to save the world, to set us free.
Oh, how He loves us, each precious one,
Jesus lived and died, God’s only son.
So however you celebrate this ‘Christmas’ season,
Never, never forget, ‘Christ’ is the reason.
