Wondrous Morn’

Hear the bells ring
Come, let us sing
Let us sing a song
Come and sing along

“Jesus Christ was born
One bright delightful morn
He was sent for you and me
The Savior to set us free

Let us all celebrate
This very special date
For Christ the Lord was born
On this wondrous morn”

If One Could See

I cannot deny
I will rely
On Adonai     (Lord)
He does supply

The Lord is aware
Of your every care
So do not despair
He’s always right there

You will always find
Adonai is kind
Brings peace to the mind
Guards front and behind

Oh, if one could see
How awesome is He
Faithful and worthy
Behold His glory

One Holy Night

One holy night,
a star burned bright.
Way down in Bethlehem,
is where it did stem.
Joseph and Mary,
were given a baby.

Way up high,
in the sky,
angels were heard,
giving a word.
The shepherds did hear,
and had no fear.
Even though it was night,
they immediately took flight.
They had to go see,
this new born baby.

The Wise Men from a far,
had been following a star.
This star did burn bright,
for many a night.
They did ponder,
what was yonder.
The star they followed,
was to see the Hallowed.
One does proclaim,
from the east they came.
They traveled far and wide,
riding on camels’ hide.
Their journey was swift,
for each had a gift.
Each one of them did bring,
a gift for the new born King,
It has been told,
that one brought gold.
Frankincense was brought.
That was a nice thought.
The last gift was like spice,
which sure smelled nice.

When the magi did arrive.
The baby was alive.
In the stable, on the hay,
is where the new born baby lay.
The parents couldn’t afford more,
because they were quite poor.
Each Wise Man bent his knee,
upon seeing the baby.
I bet their hearts did sing,
as they looked at the King.
Their gifts they gave,
to the One who will save.
Jesus is his name.
He is why they came.

Then they went on their way,
praising God for this day.
God deserves all the glory.
This is a great true story.

Holiday Struggle

The holiday struggle,
it’s so hard to juggle.
Oh, what should I do?
I don’t want to be blue.

There is so much on my mind.
I do so need to find,
a way to get through,
all that I have to do.

I will just sit here,
and dismiss all fear.
I don’t want to miss,
the meaning of this.

Christmas should not cause strife,
all the time in my life.
I need to let go,
and go with the flow.

So I will.
I shall fill,
my mind with a good thought,
and not be high-wrought.

I will smirk,
when at work.
I will not let things get me down,
for I do not want to frown.

I will focus on what is true,
If it is the last thing I do.
I will be in a good mood,
and I will not brood.

Christmas Hustle

Christmas should be
the time of year,
When people are filled
with lots of cheer.

Being so busy,
hustle and bustle about,
Hoping what we want
will not run out.

The pace is quickened.
There’s so much to do.
Wanting to buy
only gifts for a few.

Then all of a sudden,
the time has drawn near.
It is almost that time,
and we say, “Oh dear”!

What has just happened,
what has gone wrong?
It is almost here,
and I haven’t a song.

Then I looked out my window,
to my amazement I saw,
the snow coming down.
It looked so cold and raw.

But wait!
What could this be?
It is my friends,
coming to visit me.

I opened the door,
and invited them in.
I could hardly wait,
for the talk to begin.

“We have been hearing,
that you are sad and blue.
There is so little time left,
and there’s so much to do.

We came over to see you,
because you needed to hear
‘This is a joyous time,
so why do you fear?

Put your trust in the Lord,
He will give you a song.
Why not do this?
How can you go wrong?

His peace He will give you,
you only need to ask.
Why not do it now?
This is not a hard task!’ ”

I sat there and thought,
Oh, now what have I done!
I do trust in,
the Almighty One.

I changed my focus,
onto the One above.
And now I could feel,
His mighty love.

Oh this felt great,
and I felt so grand.
I was ready to go,
for I was in His hand.

We said our good byes.
They walked out the door.
For now filled with peace,
I did fret no more.
