On That First Christmas Day.....

No crazy, crowded shopping malls
No Santa dressed in red
No Jingle Bells or Deck the Halls
At that wee manger bed
No to-do lists, no frantic stress
No bank accounts run dry
Oh, how did all this craziness
Become our Christmas time?

Oh Jesus, how did your birthday
Become this mad affair?
‘Merry Christmas’ we all say
As we dash here and there
Oh Jesus, if you could tell us
I wonder what you’d say
Would remind us of the gift
On that first Christmas Day?

to us a son is given......Isa.9:6
