There are many gifts of Christmas,
Filling multiple hearts with joy;
But the gift that fills hearts with love,
Is Jesus, Godís own Baby Boy!

Many of the gifts of Christmas
Bring only a momentary pleasure;
The excitement has soon ebbed away,
Godís Gift is a Gift beyond measure!

All homes canít afford the tinsel and lights,
The trees, the baubles, and glitter;
But Jesus came to bear manís sin,
Keep hearts from becoming bitter!

Jesus puts a smile on the face,
Springs of joy in the stride.
Heíll comfort, guide, and keep you,
Walk daily close to your side!

Heíll lift your heavy burdens,
Provide for your every need.
Heíll fill hearts with peace and joy,
Re-pay for every good deed!

No matter what your circumstance,
His love is always there,
Thereís comfort in His presence,
He will answer every prayer!

So, as you place your presents,
Carefully beneath your tree,
Make room for Jesus in your heart;
Thatís the happiest youíll ever be!

very nice meter, and an even nice message! Thanks for sharing.

So much truth in this sweet poem.

Think about reducing the use of exclamation points--they're best reserved for use in dialogue.

This poem would make a lovely bulletin insert this season.
