What Is Christmas
Is it just a day at the end of the year,
A season of joy, merry making and cheer?
Is it people and presents and glittering trees?
Ah no, it is more than any of these.
For under the tinsel and hidden from sight
Is the promise and meaning of that first Christmas night
When the Shepherds stood in wondering awe
And felt transformed by what they saw.
So let us not in our search for pleasure
Forget our right to this priceless treasure.
For Christmas is still a God-given day;
And let us remember to keep it that way.
