If this Christmas season were seen in a mirror,
What would be found there in it’s clear reflection?
Would there be singing, or sharing and love...
Would anything there point in Jesus’ direction?
Would there be scenes of sweet celebration,
Honoring Jesus... rememb’ring His birth?
Who there would practice “good will to all men”
And live in a way to bring peace on the earth?
Christmas has meaning anew every year
As His love is birthed afresh in each heart.
And when this happens, new joy will come forth...
His love and His peace and warmth to impart.
The scenes in the mirror will be lovely indeed,
Recording the love of the Christmas season,
For all that has meaning and really has worth
Is found in our Lord... HE is the reason!
Without Jesus Christ the mirrors will be empty
And will not record a scene or reflection.
The scenes will be lost, for they don’t have true meaning,
And will not be worthy of sweet recollection.
