A Christmas Prayer

 The day is finally here
 A day of mirth and good cheer
 We’ve waited this long
 And sung all the songs
 That deck the halls this year
  
 The Christmas tree shines so bright
 And the houses are covered with lights
 The presents are many
 The foods getting ready
 And soon we’ll all wake from the night
  
 The children flock to the tree
 And open their presents with glee
 Paper flies everywhere
 Parents laugh without a care
 They just hope the children are pleased
  
 Once all the presents are open
 It’s time for the feast to begin
 We sit at the table
 And all who are able
 Take turns as we start to dig in
  
 Then a gentle hand says wait
 Let’s take a minute to pray
 So they all bow their heads
 As these words are said
 To give God the thanks for this day
  
 Oh, the joy of Christmas
 Glad tidings we all sing
 Blessed Hallelujahs
 To the King of Kings
 Glory in the highest
 Emmanuel is here
 Let’s not forget the reason
 For this special time of year
  
 Because God sent His son
 In a manger bed He lay
 Such a simple start
 Yet we celebrate this day
 Because that little babe
 Gave His life our debt to pay
 And now we’re born again
 If we follow in His way
  
 There’s a hush that fills the room
 As a little child says
 I want to follow Him
 Will you show me the way?
 And right there at the table
 Before the meal begins
 We pray the sinner’s prayer
 And that child has entered in
  
 Oh, the joy of Christmas
 Glad tidings we all sing
 Blessed Hallelujahs
 To the King of Kings
 Glory in the highest
 Emmanuel is here
 Let’s not forget the reason
 For this special time of year
