Christmas by Jennifer Rene Daniel


Christmas
by Jennifer Rene Daniel
The bustle of the Christmas shops
The music blaring loud
I seem to miss the Saviour
in that bright and motley crowd

The prattle of the little tongues
Of all they hope to get
I find the biggest gift of all
Not mentioned-they forget!

The happy songs at Christmas time
Of sleights and silvery bells
I long to hear of Bethlehem
The songs we knew so well

O Saviour, must Thou stand aside
In all this bright array?
So tragically rejected
A meaningless display!

Oh sing thy joyous praise to God
And worship Him anew
Remembering His birth, His Death
Salvation brought to you!
