The lights are lit, some in colors some clear,
Green trees in abundance grace homes with cheer,
Decorations abound for many a mile,
Christmas hopes bring about many a smile.
‘Til the season to give and so we believe,
The presents stacked high for we also receive,
Nativity sets and snowmen grace many a lawn,
Yes, Christmas comes to adult and fawn.
Oh, no, it doesn’t erase all the evil that exists,
Doesn’t replace those we dearly miss,
It can’t undo what evil has wrought,
But for the soul who just a bit caught,
The Christmas Spirit nurtures a flame,
Burning within in God’s holy name.
For God’s love became flesh by a miracle birth,
His Son became man on this earth.
Christmas comes but once a year,
If only for everyone it could bring good cheer,
But it should always remind me and you,
Jesus Christ is the light that makes Christmas true.
