Commercialism sadly rules
Observance of the holidays.
What once was sacred has become
Too secular in many ways.
Amidst the flowers of springtime,
The children think it is funny,
To hunt for all the colored eggs
Hidden by the Easter Bunny.
But I'm sorry, Easter Bunny,
Here's a letter of rejection.
Easter is more than candied eggs,
It's about the Resurrection.
The Indians shared their harvest
With the Pilgrims one fine autumn,
And for the blessings they received,
They all took the time to thank HIM.
Now the days of fall bring football,
And the turkey stuffed with dressing.
But let us not forget to thank
The Good Lord who gives the Blessing.
The children everywhere all know
Christmas means a lot of presents.
And people filling shopping malls
Bring smiles to all of the merchants.
But once upon a winter's night,
God's own Son was born to save us.
The real Reason for the Season
Is the birth of our Lord Jesus.
If only we could all return
To observance of Holy Days,
And give to God what He deserves,
Sincere worship and heartfelt praise.
