In presents from a shopping mall
And dashing back and forth in stores
For many items, large and small.
Jesus Christ is still the reason -
Christmas is His wondrous story.
He was God’s most precious gift.
Give Him praise and give Him glory.
Jesus’ name has been erased
From speech and courts and public schools,
But He still lives in many hearts.
He is Lord, and He still rules!
What a wondrous gift God gave,
Of love and joy and hope for all.
The happiness which Jesus brings
Cannot be purchased in a mall.
“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given: and the government shall be upon his shoulder: and his name shall be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace.”
Isaiah 9:6 KJV
