The presents laid beneath the tree
Are chosen with such care;
Every child has visions of
What is hiding there!
And, Oh! The laughter and the glee;
The little ones delight!
When they, at last, can open ONE
On Christmas Eve’s special night!
But...there is more, and if you ask
Your Grandpa with gray hair,
He’ll tell you that this celebration
Began with angels in the air!
They sang the Peace Song to the earth;
They told them of a Prince....
They said a tiny Babe was born
Whose Kingdom would not end.
Learn it well, for it will teach you
How to live...and die...
How to find a golden street
And a mansion in the sky!
The story goes on forever in
The hearts of believing men;
Truly the Christmas story will
Never have an end!
