Ala bam a
Once upon a child,
The world was freed from sin,
In a lowly stable,
Born in Jerusalem.
This child was born of Mary,
Conceived only of God's breath,
His life was so miraculous,
Even in his death.
He gave sight unto the blinded,
Fed the hungry-clothed the poor,
Gave wisdom to the simple minded,
Taught us what our lives are for.
I think that's what God intended,
For us to do on Christmas day,
Give of ourselves and spread some joy,
To those in a "needing" way.
Think of what you have,
And of those that have much less,
Give from your heart this Christmas day,
You'll truly feel blessed.
Remember the true meaning,
Not the gifts all stacked in piles,
The reason there's a Christmas;
There was "Once Upon A Child."
