Give little thought to Jesus’ birth?
Maybe at Christmas time they’re stirred
To contemplate on what they’ve heard---
To ponder these things in their heart?
Perhaps amidst the twinkling lights
They’ll catch a dim and fleeting sight
Of someone they once heard about---
A once cherished hope---dulled by doubt---
A Child who came one Christmas night?
Perhaps the songs of carolers
Some sentiment of comfort stirs
As they recall sweet childhood joys---
A memory doubt can’t destroy
Of songs once sung in winter furs?
Maybe they’ll see in giving gifts
Some hint of love---their spirit lifts---
For love can soften hardened hearts:
Could Season’s kindness play a part
In pointing to the Greatest Gift?
Perhaps the Gift of God they’ll find
Hid in the customs of this time---
The gift of everlasting life
Which God provides in Jesus Christ---
A gift to which they’ve long been blind!!
