What's the first thing that comes to mind
When you hear "Merry Christmas" said?
Is it a picture of reindeer flying
Or a big man dressed in red?
How about a talking snowman
Who gave a little Holiday cheer
Or big green trees with lights around
And presents piled near
What does it mean to you
When someone says "Happy Holidays!"
Do you smile and tell them the same
Or just go on your way?
Do you cringe at the thought of Christmas
With more family than you can bear?
Or do you relish every moment
You're with the ones who care
When a Merry Christmas banner
Hangs o'er you in the sky
Do you anger at the sight of it
And get offended at that line?
Do you ever ponder the reason
We have a Christmas day?
Or is it just another thing
To think about...so no way!
Well Christmas means much more to me
Than anything I can say
It's about a baby coming
It's about the FIRST Christmas day
How God sent His only son
To save the world from sin
"Born in a manger" is how it goes
That's where humbleness began
If I dare to look back to that starry night
I imagine Angels filling the sky
Mary in awe of her newborn King,
It brings a tear to my eye
So I think there's a lot more to Christmas
Than festive Holiday fun
It's about the birth of a Savior
Who would bless us all, every one.
