The Point

"Tis the season to be jolly!"
So the story goes.
Why is it, then, that everybody
Seems to have the woes?

Could it be their hearts and minds
Just cannot seem to find
The time to stop and focus
On the Savior of mankind?

For that's what Christmas is, you know.
The blessed, holy birth
Of God, the Father's only Son,
Who came to save the earth

From all this worry, rush, and hassle
That we seem to think a must.
When all our loved ones really want
Is our friendship, love, and trust.

So share the greatest gift of all,
Wrapped as a baby boy
Who will never need replacing
Like a sweater, tie, or toy.

"Tis the season to be jolly!?"
Well, yes! But better, still,
Is the joy unspeakable in our hearts
That only Christ can fill!
