God's Son was born on Christmas Day
To bring the world His love.
In Bethlehem a manger blessed,
The North Star shone above.

Through mortal days Son Jesus spake
The wisdom of God's Word;
And to this day around the world,
His voice mankind has heard.

But Jesus knew at traitor's hand
He would be crucified;
And yet God's love, a gift for all
Must ever be descried.

Both far and wide then Jesus trekked,
In search of giving soul
Who'd share with all His gift of love;
Quest led to the North Pole.

He met a kindly toymaker
Who smiled and laughed a lot...
"Believe in me and share God's love,
Your soul shall perish not."

This jolly man called Santa Claus
In heed of Jesus' call,
Vowed he'd give toys each Christmas night
To children one and all.

So Jesus smiled upon this man -
That's how this story goes.
It's said His Star would light the way,
Reflecting reindeer's nose.

From that day forth each Christmas Eve
The elves have packed the sleigh
With toys and love in Jesus' name
To bless our Christmas Day.



Wishing each and every one a Blessed Christmas Day

I enjoyed this very much... someone sent me a note this year that said, you can't take Christ out of Christmas.  This is a very clear metaphor for love and giving.  I hope your Christmas was blessed in just that way.  Thank you for sharing this.

Karen
