Christmastime anticipation is in the air.
Excitement bubbles in children’s hearts almost everywhere.
Heaven smiles down when they see and hear,
Thanks and praise for Jesus, as Christmas day draws near.
When the poor and rich walk side by side,
Getting in the spirit of love, God is glorified.
The rich reach out to help the poor.
And the poor offer their all to honor the Lord.
Love fills stockings hung with care,
With good things to be shared.
Wrapped presents retell God’s gift bestowed,
The holy child wrapped in love’s swaddling clothes.
The babe grew to hang on a rugged tree;
To give His all to share His life with thee.
Songs of joy from grateful heart rings,
A gift offered to honor Christ our now risen King.
Christmas-time is by the wise honored and savored;
Lovingly spent with family, friends and neighbors.
And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped
In swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
