Sinking Ground

 No one expected the angels
 No one expected the star
 No one expected that shepherds would bow
 Or that kings would come from afar
 No one knew that a child would be born
 In a manger filled with hay
 Only the Father knew His plan
 On that blessed Christmas day
  
 We hustle and bustle, thinking all is well
 As presents are piled up high
 We fix our great feasts and tell of good cheer
 While the sun rises high in sky
 We look at our children, all merry and bright
 As they open their presents with glee
 With great hope we look out on this beautiful day
 In the land of the brave and the free
  
 But in truth all around us the world’s fading fast
 Into a world of defeat
 Morality slowly is withered away
 And a plague fills us all with disease
 They speak of a cure when before there was none
 All around us people bow down
 We must sound the alarm in this worst of all times
 We are standing on sinking ground
  
 Our Father above sees all that transpires
 He knows when the time will be right
 That the trumpet will sound for all men to hear
 In the clouds His Son will arrive
 He will come as a thief in the night that day
 No one knows when is the time
 Just as He came on that Christmas Day
 Only few will be chosen to rise 
  
 Are you ready for Him to appear that day?
 Is your heart settled in His true grace?
 Have you asked Jesus Christ to be your Lord?
 Does He receive all of your praise?
 On this Christmas Day give your whole life to Him
 All your heart and your soul and your mind
 Tomorrow may be too late my friend
 And you’ll find you’re left behind
 Unexpected by many He will show up
 Please don’t say I’ll do it next time
