WHO IS THIS BABY JESUS THAT MY MOMMY LOVES SO?

SHE SAID HE WAS BORN A LONG TIME AGO,

 

IN A STABLE IN A TOWN CALLED BETHLEHAM,

AND HE WAS TO GROW UP TO BE AN IMPORTANT MAN,

 

BUT NOT JUST A MAN BUT GOD FROM UP ABOVE.

HE CAME DOWN TO EARTH TO SHOW US HIS LOVE.

 

HE CAME DOWN TO EARTH AS A PRESENT FOR ME

AS A SACRIFICE FOR SINS TO SET OUR SOULS FREE.

 

THE ANGLES CAME AND ANNOUNCED HIS BIRTH

THE SHEPHERDS WERE IN AWE AT THEIR BEAUTY AND WORDS.

 

THEY WENT TO THE BABE AND THE KINGS FOLLOWED THE STAR

AND PRESENTED OUR LORD WITH GIFTS FROM AFAR,

 

BUT THE MOST PRECIOUS GIFTS WE COULD EVER GIVE HIM,

THE SEARCHER OF HEARTS WHO LIVES WITHIN.

 

THE GIFT OF OUR HEARTS, THE FRUIT OF OUR LIPS,

OUR LIVES AS A PRESENT AS HE GAVE US HIS.

 

TO KNOW HIM AND LOVE HIM IS WHAT HE ASKS

TO PUT OTHERS FIRST AND TO PUT OURSELVES LAST

AS SERVENTS TO OTHERS AS HE DID IN THE PAST.

 

TO LOVE MERCY, BE HUMBLE, AND CARING

TO LOVE OUR NEIGHBOR AS OURSELVES AND SHOW THEM BY SHARING.

 

HE SEES ALL OUR DEEDS. HE DOESN’T MISS ONE.

HE KNOWS ALL THE THINGS THAT WE HAVE DONE.

 

BUT THIS ONE WHO KNOWS US THE BEST, KNOWS ALL THE THING WE HAVE DONE WRONG

GAVE UP HIS LIFE AND HE KNEW ALL ALONG.

 

HE KNEW! YES, HE KNEW WE WOULD STUMBLE AND FALL.

WE WOULD DO THINGS WRONG AND NOT FOLLOW HIS CALL,

 

BUT HE KEPT ON CALLING BECAUSE GOD THE FATHER GAVE US TO HIM.

WE ARE HIS MOST PRECIOUS GIFT AND HE WOULDN’T LOSE US TO SIN.

 

 

SO HE SET AN EXAMPLE BY HIS LIFE AND HIS CROSS,

TO SHOW US THE WAY SO WE WOULDN’T GET LOST,

 

ON THE WAY TO HIS HOUSE THROUGH THE CLOUDS AND THE AIR.

HE GAVE US HIMSELF SO WE WOULDN’T BE SCARED.

 

SO, JUST ASK FOR FORGIVENESS AND TRUST IN THE SON

JESUS, BABY JESUS, THE GENTLEST ONE.

 

THANK YOU FATHER FOR THE MOST PRECIOUS GIFT OF ALL

THE GIFT OF YOUR SON IN A BABY SO SMALL.

 

MERRY CHRISTMAS JOHN AND KATIE, LOVE YOUR MOMMY!
