'A No Gift Christmas For Me'
I would like this Christmas to be
a' No Give Christmas', for me!
So that what you had thought of to spend
would be given to another instead.
For what will I take to my Father's home?
It is not of what you bought me I own.
If I have not lead to Christ my fellow man
what good would these gifts do me then?
So a, ' No Gift Christmas', this year please!
that is my prayer and all that I need.
Take your time and money and give to another
making them now a sister in Christ, or brother.
'Merry Christmas! '
