A long time ago, one dark night
A star in the East shining bright
Shepherds sitting out on a hill
Watching their sheep lying still
The wise men began to ride on their camels
Didn’t know how far and wide
Followed the star to a stall
There found the greatest gift of all
Over the years things have changed
We have lost the real meaning
Of Christmas and one special night
Amidst the lights, glitter and golden ribbons,
We forget about the child, born on a night so cold.
Instead of celebrating his birth
And praising his presence in the earth
We’ve turned this day into a fairy tale.
God loved His own
And provided a way—the only Way
For us to spend eternity with Him
Gave His one and only Son
To take our punishment for our sins.
He paid the price in full,
And we are free from condemnation
when we accept that free gift of love.
The true meaning of Christmas is
The celebration of this incredible act of love.
For this is the only reason that
We should celebrate this day,
To become focused on anything else,
Would take the meaning away.
Merry Christmas,don’t mean the same
if it ain’t in Jesus’ name.
