As you prepare for Christmas, what thoughts are in your mind?
The coming of the Saviour or the presents you can’t find!
Do you think of baby Jesus as you deck the halls with holly?
Or are your thoughts preoccupied with the food that’s in the trolley!
Will you be moved this Christmas by the sound of Carol Singing?
Or are you more in tune with the sound of shop tills ringing!
On that family occasion when you choose a Christmas tree
Do you think of how that baby came to die for you and me?
Christmas could mean so much more if you’re prepared to see
The fact that Jesus’ coming was to open eternity
So as you celebrate this Christmas why not resolve to start anew?
And change your life perspective of what His birth should mean for you.
