We sing our Christmas carols
And pray our saintly prayers—
We decorate our Christmas trees
And share our Christmas cheer.
Yet we’re tempted to dispute,
A waste on Christmas cards—
Buy a ‘ten-for-a-dollar’ 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?
There’s something more to Christmas
Than dashing through the snow—
A message of the new born King,
Is what I want to see.
Scenes of Mary and her child
With shepherds kneeling near—
Angels in the realms of glory,
Announcing Jesus’ 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 Savor’s birth
Displayed upon each card—
To decorate our mantle’s shelf
And hang in every room.
Gold, Frankincense and Myrrh
Three very special gifts—
Each to honor a new born King,
Born within a stable.
I want to share the joy I sense,
With every card like this—
Each one affirms our Father’s gift
And hope to all mankind.
So precious is our Savor’s birth,
We need to spread the news—
It’s time we Christians took a stand
And share Him with the world.
Take some time to choose a card
It’s really not that hard—
Perhaps you could design your own,
But make it from your heart.
Come; let’s rejoice in His birth,
Spread the news, Christ is born—
Choose a card that declares the truth;
Don’t waste those Christmas cards.
