Christmas Time

~ Christmas Time ~

It wasn't much different
then from what it is today
A woman holds her newborn son
and bows her head and prays

Thank you for this new life,
ten fingers and ten toes
She gazes at his sleepy face,
a bond between them grows

A feeling stirs within her heart,
so powerful, so warm
She would give all she has to protect
her child from harm

Mary was that mother's name
and Jesus was her son
Her feelings even more intense
as she held "the chosen one"

No downy crib to lay Him in,
no comfort from the cold
but the brightest star there ever was
brought others to behold

In time nails would pierce His hands
and feet so fair
The wooden cross would hold Him high,
as again she bowed in prayer

She could not hold Him in her arms
as she did in days of old
for He left to prepare a place for us
with streets of pure gold

He is the son of God,
but born just like any other
He gave his life for you and me
and every sister and brother

Our job is not so different now
 than Mary's was that day
for our children all belong to God,
our job is to show them the way

As we celebrate Christmas time,
 remember the manger filled with straw
May hearts be filled with joy,
as He was born and died for us all
