The Reason

Shoppers are shopping

Mailmen are walking

Delivering gifts bought on line

Trees all are glimmering

Houses are shimmering

Lights hung to cheer us in time


Carols are ringing

Sleigh Bells are jingling

Songs of the season are here

Bright lights are glowing

Egg nog is flowing

All midst the words of good cheer


We all are running

From each day’s beginning

To celebrate Christmas each year

But how about stopping

Take time from shopping

And realize the reason where here


The star was a’shining

The cattle were lowing

When Mary gave birth to a son

Shepherds were praising

Sheep were there grazing

A Savior for all had now come


He went ‘round teaching

And gave many healing

His words filled the hearer with life

But leaders were seething

And they started pleading

To have Jesus crucified


He went through the suff’ring

And became the off’ring

For all of the sins of mankind

The grave not confining

He came out a’rising

Defeating death for all of time


This is the reason

For Christmas season

Let’s not forget why we sing

For this is God’s son

Who became the one

To save all of us from ours sin


So, I will sing praise

To His wonderful name

I will lift up my voice to the King

He’s always the same

And His love will remain

He has given to us everything
