Keeping Christ in Christmas
Bright lighted trees line the streets with good cheer;
Signs of good tidings, with festive music to hear.
Both child and adult clearly are able to see,
That the joy of Christmas day is fast approaching.
There are songs about Santa, reindeer and sleds in the snow,
And some lively tunes of the joys of mistletoe.
You may hear a song every once and awhile,
About the Christmas story of the virgin mother and holy child.
You may see an image of babe in a manger- frozen in time past,
To remind of Christmas’ real reason as you in wonder look back.
Sweet little children will only learn of the Holy virgin birth,
And about the Savior that left heaven to be born on earth,
From caring parents and others that faithfully Christ testify.
Christmas-times real reason is only then kept alive!
And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up.
