The clock is ticking, time is flying
Christmas day is drawing close,
We’re rushing here, shopping there
Preparing cameras for the perfect pose.
But let’s slow down and take a moment,
Reflect on the day at hand,
Do you know the true meaning of Christmas?
And with that truth, Where do you stand?
For there’s much more to Christmas than Santa Claus,
And maxing out your credit cards,
There is One who is our example,
Who taught us to offer our hearts.
The truth of the celebration
Is to honor the Lord’s great plan
Of giving His all by sending His Son
to earth for the redemption of man.
The tiny babe entered the world
With a purpose so very grand,
He’d grow up to give himself on a cross
Lay down His life for the sins of man.
So we set aside each year, a day
To celebrate Jesus’ birth,
Who grew up to be the Savior and Lord
Of all mankind on earth.
The King awaits with open arms
To save you from your sin,
To fill you with His Spirit and Joy
As He draws you near to Him.
So let’s rejoice as we give to each other
This joyful holiday,
And reflect on the greatest gift of all,
King Jesus, who showed us the Way.
And as you reflect you must decide
On this truth you have at hand,
So I ask again with this Gospel truth,
Where do you stand?
