Remembering the Christ of Christmas

Picture1

Remember the Christ of Christmas
it's why we celebrate
the birth of Christ our Saviour
who came to give us life.

Remember the Christ of Christmas
God's Son came down to earth,
when angels appeared to shepherds
declaring the Christ child's birth.

Remember the Christ of Christmas
as we prepare and plan,
that our focus should remain upon
Jesus Christ, the Son of Man.

Remember the Christ of Christmas
amongst the holly and the wreath,
as we look past all the trimmings
and see what's underneath.

Remember the Christ of Christmas
and how His was birth was not enough,
that His journey finally took him
to His death upon the cross.

Remember the Christ of Christmas
and His ultimate sacrifice -
from birth to death then resurrection
He came to give us life.
