Christmas - Is He There?
Christmas trees all trimmed with care;
Santa and his helpers everywhere;
Stores so crowded - they overflow;
Presents, goodies, lights all aglow;
Festivities of the holidays - such fun to enjoy;
Stockings filled for each girl and boy...
But, can we find the Saviour anywhere?
Do we see the incomparable Christ - Is He there?
Among all the tinsel, is the sacred in our midst?
Are hearts really filled with heavenly bliss?
As the cash registers ring without cease,
Do faces reflect true joy and peace?
Sometimes our hearts cry out, "Deliver us from this season"-
Then we come aside, and focus on Him- who is the reason.
Such a Holy event - His coming to earth,
God's only begotten Son - a virgin birth.
Lord, help us to truly celebrate,
As we slow down, and quietly meditate.
Guard our hearts through all the fanfare...
Help us to worship, and know You are there.
"Follow peace with all men and holiness,
without which no man shall see the Lord"
