The Birth Of Christ Part Two

To save the world Christ went down to Earth.
People marveled and cheered at His birth.
He came to save all the lost souls.
He came to make all peoples' hearts whole!

We celebrate the occasion with gifts and song.
We put up decorations all Christmas season long.
It is a time to be happy and sincere.
It is a time to be full of love and cheer.

It has also become a time to sing and tell stories
Of Santa Clause and his reindeer, besides the glories
Of Christ's birth and the pageantry it brought.
Instead of Him, the focus is on the presents to be bought.

Songs like 'Rudoplh the Red-nosed Reindeer'
And 'Frosty the Snowman' are held as dear
As legitimate songs for the season.
What do those songs have to do with the REAL reason?

Gift giving has become way out of control,
People trampling each other, letting satan rule their souls.
They push and shove just for the big savings.
Causing oh so great rantings and ravings.

Materialism seems to have taken the floor
When it comes to Christmas, showing Jesus the door.
Nowhere in the Word does it say to celebrate the day.
Now look at what happens, satan is having his laughs, I'd say.

Lord God, please change Your children's hearts,
Thereby giving the celebration of Jesus a new start.
Have mercy, Lord, on the materialistic souls,
And place in their hearts none but Godly goals.
