'Tis the Season

To be sung to the tune of Winter Wonderland

Folly rings, are you listening?
Jesus Christ stores are dissing.

It's okay to say, "Happy Holiday,"

But "Christmas" sudd-en-ly is not allowed.

Folks are rushed, stressed and harried,
Where's the cheer we once carried
Deep in our hearts, good will to impart,
In the wiser days when "Christmas" was allowed?

Seems to me we've lost the heart of Christmas--
It's more than just another holiday!
We've got to find a way back into Christmas,
to see that it's not bad to smile and say:

Merry Christ-mas, God bless you!
Let His peace now unstress you...
The season's a gift that's meant to uplift,
For Jesus Christ was born this holy day!

It's not that hard to rediscover Christmas--
Just get your focus on the tiny One
Who came to bring you joy and restoration,
That little baby, Jesus, God's own Son!

So remem-ber this season
There is no worthy reason
To omit the name of the Baby who came.
So let's hear it:
Merry Christmas, Everyone!

Great lyrics, Karen! You should be a writer. ;)

But you are so right, Jesus is the reason for the season. We need to be vocal about it!

Hugs, Rachel
