And Rudolph was bored
So he went on a practice flight
And out into space he soared.
He navigated his way through space
With the greatest of skill and ease,
Making his way past Saturn and Mars
And heading toward the Pleiades.
Then BANG! - it suddenly happened!
Without warning or being foretold
He hit something solid
And instantly was knocked out cold.
"Where am I?", he wondered
As he opened his eyes coming to.
But then when he saw the Angel
He definitely had his first clue.
"I'm sorry, little reindeer,"
The Angel gently said,
As he touched Rudolphs little nose
And patted him on his head.
"We had a flying accident
Little you and bigger me,
And since neither of us were very alert
BOOM! - we crashed as you can see.
"Your nose is broken
And the bright shiny red is gone
But Jesus is here and He'll fix you up
And you'll be perfect as a newborn fawn."
"No, Angel, No," Rudolph cried aloud.
"My nose, my nose, it can't be fixed!
I'll lose my position, my life and my job
And for the rest of my life I'm jinxed!
"My name is Rudolph,
And I'm Santa's eyes in the dark!
For he can't find the rooftops
Or see where his sleigh will park!"
"Don't worry, Rudolph,
Jesus knows just what to do.
He'll exchange one shiny red nose
For Starry Bright Eyes...that's TWO!
"Tell me, Rudolph, what do you think
About what Christmas really means?
Is it the birth of a Savior for a fallen world
Depicted in the Nativity scenes?
"Or is it your boss, Mr. Santa,
That jolly old man with a beard,
Who's fat and wears a bright red suit
That has become more and more endeared?
"Of course you're only a reindeer
But, He also created you,
So when you return to Earth, little one,
Why not worship the the One who is True?
"There once was a Bethlehem star
That welcomed Jesus to Earth,
Now you could become the Modern Day Star
That reminds them of His blessed birth.
"So, bless you, little reindeer,
When you fly Christmas Eve in the sky,
Let the world look up and see the STARS in your eyes,
And remember Christmas - the WHO, the WHEN and the WHY."
