We sing our Christmas carols
And pray our saintly prayersâ€”
We decorate our Christmas trees
And share our Christmas cheer.
Yet weâ€™re tempted to dispute,
A waste on Christmas cardsâ€”
Buy a â€˜ten-for-a-dollarâ€™ pack
And write some worthless words.
Do we ever take the time
To choose a better card?
Do we really want a Santa
Who drives a flying sleigh?
Thereâ€™s something more to Christmas
Than dashing through the snowâ€”
A message of the new born King,
Is what I want to see.
Scenes of Mary and her child
With shepherds kneeling nearâ€”
Angels in the realms of glory,
Announcing Jesusâ€™ birth.
Do you see the Christmas star
Reflect against the sky?
These tiny specks of glitter dust
Bring gladness to my heart.
Treasures of the Savorâ€™s birth
Displayed upon each cardâ€”
To decorate our mantleâ€™s shelf
And hang in every room.
Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh
Three very special giftsâ€”
Each to honor a new born King,
Born within a stable.
I want to share the joy I sense,
With every card like thisâ€”
Each one affirms our Fatherâ€™s gift
And hope to all mankind.
So precious is our Savorâ€™s birth,
We need to spread the newsâ€”
Itâ€™s time we Christians took a stand
And share Him with the world.
Take some time to choose a card
Itâ€™s really not that hardâ€”
Perhaps you could design your own,
But make it from your heart.
Come; letâ€™s rejoice in His birth,
Spread the news, Christ is bornâ€”
Choose a card that declares the truth;
Donâ€™t waste those Christmas cards.
