You can have thanksgiving with no turkey and no other trim.
You can have Christmas without a tree over pretty presents, abrim.
If you consider the tiny treasure wrapped in swaddling clothes,
That grew and gave Himself so humanity could be free and whole.
A wonderful grace gift to all mankind adorned Calvary’s tree,
Wrapped in precious crimson blood for you and for me.
A tree, He made, bore Him for our sin debt He paid out of love.
So, in thanksgiving for Christmas, let us praise the Father above.
You may have and take pleasure in your merry Xmas.
As for me, my joy is in Jesus, the heart of my Christmas.
Luke 2:10-14NLT …the angel reassured them. “Don’t be afraid!” he said. “I bring you good news that will bring great joy to all people. The Savior—yes, the Messiah, the Lord—has been born today in Bethlehem, the city of David! And you will recognize him by this sign: You will find a baby wrapped snugly in strips of cloth, lying in a manger.” Suddenly, the angel was joined by a vast host of others—the armies of heaven—praising God and saying, “Glory to God in highest heaven, and peace on earth to those with whom God is pleased.”
I Owe Jesus
