There are many who will have no joy as the holidays draw near,
Just bad memories of a Christmas they’ll share from some past year.
They may have lost a special friend, or maybe someone dear,
But maybe this could be the year that they find Jesus Near.
So turn around take a look and maybe you will see,
That someone who is hurting as Christmas time draws near.
Turn around take a look and maybe you could be,
That one who gives them Jesus this year.
There are many who will be homeless and have no place to stay,
Still others who are laid off and have no source of pay.
Still others who are all alone with no one to share that day,
But maybe this could be the year that they find Jesus Is The Way.
If I should name each hurting heart, I know this song would have no end,
But I know the One Who fixes hearts as only He can mend.
So I’ll pray the Lord will meet each need and to that heartache, attend,
For maybe this could be the year that they make Jesus their Friend.

I will look over the one you commented on and try to improve it. at the time when I wrote it I really wasn't trying to show hope as much as I was showing a lack of thanksgiving.
