Christmas Cheer

With the Christmas Season here, missing is true Christmas Cheer.

What seems today to be ignored, is the person of Christ our Lord.

The babe God sent to this world, is the message we should herald.

For that little child born in a stall, was sent to us as The Lord of all.

Commercial winds made us drift, completely away from God’s Gift.

With all of the trim, it’s suggestive, that the season is quite festive.

You do hear both laughter and joy, but no mention of the baby boy.

Men took a blessed Holy Night, and filled it with a commercial light.

Although you hear much caroling, you hear no praises to our King.

Men sing of joy and Christmas tide, but Christ the Savior is denied.

Halls are decked in tinsel and light, with the baby Jesus out of sight.

In lieu of Merry Christmas men say, have yourself a Happy Holiday.

Christ by many is simply dismissed, while they seek out other gifts.

Many get caught in a shopping race, bypassing God’s gift of Grace.

Turning the day to remember Christ, into a virtual commercial heist.

That day God came to this earth, through a miraculous virgin birth.

Christmas for many my friend, is simply how much did they spend.

And as they franticly shop and fret, they quickly slip down into debt.

Jesus Christ paid more than all, when He left His throne for a stall.

God sent the gift and paid the price, and His Son was the sacrifice.

And the gift for us is Eternal Life, wrapped in His Son Jesus Christ.

For men who truly know The Lord, it’s a day for Christ to be adored.

For us it’s a Hallow time of year, being misused by other men I fear.

Christmas for them, you might say, is really one gigantic hollow day.
