Have you ever wondered about this time of year?
Christmas trees and presents and all the festive cheer
Sleigh bells ringing, twinkling lights and little old St Nick
And children awaiting Christmas morn’ to see what they shall get
Why do we go all out at this one time of the year
And live the rest it seems cowering in our fear
Like a people cast out, out without a home
Like misguided runaways on the streets to roam
Leaving off our cloaks as if we’ve lost our jobs
Slumbering through the night with inner-echoing sobs
Tell me, from God’s wisdom, what does the Bible mean?
When it says the wise men followed the star that they had seen
Unto us is given a Son, a Savior, a King
Wonderful, anointed, counselor, good tidings he shall bring
Salvation to a people doomed to death by sin
Wisdom’s power by His life so they can make it in
So in all of our celebrating let us not be deceived
The best gift ever given is the one we have received
Over two thousand years ago, in the town of Galilee
Jesus Christ Emmanuel, was sent to set us free!
