Christmas trees and sprigs of holly
Stockings hung on the mantelpiece
Frantic shopping for the lavish feast
Endless lists, cards and letters through the door
From people you hardly know any more
Tis the season to be merry
Cinnamon spice and cranberry jelly
Away in a manger, no crib for a bed
Wise men with gifts by the tinsel star led.
Smiling angels and shepherds gather around,
Hush, little Christ child, don’t make a sound
Hear the old lady sigh and whisper “This season makes me sad”
Remembering the past times and fun she had had
Her old bones ache and she feels so weary
“Nothing here to make me cheery.”
Now all alone, her table is set for just one
She knows that no one else is going to come
This the season for reflection
Put some money in the collection
Give a little to the poor and needy
Resolve not to be so greedy
Live a little, love a lot!
Maybe we have lost the plot?
Have we forgot, Christmas is God come to earth?
Bringing hope and new life by the wonderful birth
So let us remember the lonely and those without friends
And in This season of Christmas try make amends.
Say a prayer and ask God as best as you are able
To share your Christmas cheer with those who are less able
Then As Christmastide is passing and a New Year begins
Let us resolve to keep following the example of the King of all Kings
Walk close in his paths and listen to the words that He speaks
Every hour, every day, every season repeats
The everlasting message of love beyond measure
That precious truth is the one we should treasure.
