Christmas Tree & Cross

The Christmas Gift of Love and Life
(c) 1997 Holly L. Schmidtbleicher

In a little town called Bethlehem,
on an ordinary night,

An extraordinary child was born,
to be the Way, the Truth, and Life.

A human, virgin mother,
his father: God above.

He gave up his throne to become a man,
for all the world he loved.

Little did the people know,
who barred them from the inn;

This child born in a cattle stall
would save the world from death and sin.

Blankets that were grave clothes,
this child was wrapped within,

Portraying that he was born to die
so that we could live through him.

In time, this little boy and Son of God
grew up to be a man.

He made the blind to see, the lame to walk,
and brought the dead to life again.

But despite his miracles and power
which showed him to be Lord,

They crucified him on a cross,
then pierced him with a sword.

Why would this man, if he were God,
let himself be killed?

It was for every one of us,
just as the Father willed.

You see, his death was not in vain;
it paid a precious price.

It satisfied a righteous God
and bought our eternal life.

They pierced his side to prove his death
but that would not be his end.

For after three days in the grave,
he arose to life again.

Our one true God is living,
unlike the "gods" worshipped today.

He offers to you everlasting life
and his Word to light your way.

His standard is perfection,
that which no one can attain.

For all have sinned and for those sins,
His Son, Jesus Christ was slain.

The simple message of salvation
is faith in Christ alone,

Not love, good deeds or pennance;
we can't make it on our own.

For He knew we could not measure up;
good enough we cannot be.

Simply trust in Christ as Savior
and live eternally.

The reason for this message
I bring to you is this:

That you will know the love of God
and the real meaning of Christmas.
