With food and family and lots of good cheer
The presents are wrapped and stacked under the tree
But I heard a voice whispering what about Me?
There is so much to do before we can eat
Mash potatoes, cut pie, and carve up the meat
Now all is perfect from the table to the tea
But the voice kept whispering what about Me?
After dinner, the children ran to the tree
They shook each box to see what it could be
I’d just settled down with a glass of iced tea
When the voice once more whispered what about Me?
My child, said the Lord, I’ve been speaking to you
It’s Christmas day and there’s so much to do
The widow who sits at the window and stares
It would really be Christmas if she knew someone cares
Christmas is not just about hitting the mall
But I died on the cross to redeem one and all
This is the message I want all to hear
Whatever your troubles, I am always near
To the nursing home resident, whose family is away
With a song and a smile, you could brighten their day
To the hungry who don’t have enough to eat
Some turkey and dressing would be a nice treat
To the blind who need someone to help them to read
Your sharing the Bible would be just what they need
This world needs a Savior, so many are lost
We must keep spreading the message, no matter the cost
So let me just leave you with this one thought
About what Christmas is and what it not
It’s all about giving and not what you take
If we all practice this, a happier world we will make.
