Sounds and sights of Christmas are everywhere,
While an array of joyous songs fill the air.
There are decorated cookies and delicious candy canes,
Artfully wrapped presents under the Christmas tree,
Await Christmas morning for children filled with glee.
The aroma of Christmas dinner fills the air with the fixings to enjoy,
Our grateful hearts overflow with many reasons to rejoice.
Family, friends and loved ones all gather around,
Sharing smiles and laughter as love abounds.
Christmas carols and holy Nativity scenes,
Cause us to remember a Baby born, a Humble King.
Angels gave Glory to God, announcing the Savior’s birth,
And shepherds heard their joyful praises filling the earth.
Wise men searched for the King following Bethlehem’s Star,
Bearing gifts, bowing down in worship with all their hearts.
We may not know the exact day that our Savior was born,
But that does not diminish the truth that He is our Lord.
God's love for all of us was placed on display,
The Glory of God revealed to us on the first Christmas Day.
Heaven's Gift of Love came to dwell in our midst,
We open wide our hearts and receive His precious gift.
He fills our hearts with His presence, glory and light,
Emmanuel, God with us, Heaven’s delight.
