The Bible never mentioned a sleigh with jingle bells,
It never spoke of Santa or his helpful little elves.
I've looked for any reference to a decorated tree
With shiny lights and garland bringing in the Season's glee.
I've searched with care... it isn't there...
You can look and see.
But it does tell of the Christ-child, the Son of God on Earth,
And it tells of all the angels that announced His holy birth.
It revealed the precious Gift that God had given man...
Jesus Christ was born to fulfill God's master plan.
It's in the Book... just take a look;
He came to set us free.
So why has man forgotten why we celebrate each year?
He's the reason for the season... not Santa and his deer.
It's okay, don't take me wrong, put up a pretty tree...
But don't forget that Christ was born to die for you and me.
As you celebrate don't hesitate
to lift Christ for all to see.
