It’s not about presents, ribbons & strings,
not about toys nor the songs that we sing.
. No tree can give meaning, nor star on top sit;
no paper wrapping, ribbons nor Christmas lights lit.
. You don’t need a fat man who says “Ho Ho Ho,”
nor is it about how white is the snow.
Forget about trinkets, or that special toy;
No it’s not about the faces of young girls and boys.
. Let go of the stockings, fruitcakes and candles;
You can even get rid of fancy dresses and sandles.
It’s all about Heaven and all about Love;
about a babe in a manger, a gift from above.
Don’t think about tradition or looking behind,
But it is about Immanuel, “God with us;”
the Greatest Gift to mankind.
So next time you worry; think your poor and
feel like life stinks,
Just remember, “He’s with us”,
Your richer than you think.
