Lights twinkle and snowflakes fly
children laugh and gifts we buy.
We sing sweet songs and boxes wrap
spend time with loved one from all over the map.
Trees go up and wreaths are hung
into cozy beds excited little ones are snug
Dinners are served with all the fixin’s
thoughts drift back to those who are missing
We share presents and grateful hearts
and great Christmas traditions we do impart
But in a faraway place during a different time
one very silent night, in a manger so sublime
The heavens rejoiced and hell quaked to its base
as poor shepherd boys gazed at God’s little face
A mother’s heart filled with love beyond compare,
as she sang a lullaby and rocked Heaven’s Heir
To the world a gift was given in a baby’s quiet cry,
Heaven’s perfect Lamb born to love, teach and
The gift of Salvation born long ago on a Holy night;
the true Christmas…Among the twinkling lights.
