Christmas Now and Then

Christmas, Now and Then

As I think back on Christmas, now and then,
Sometimes I stop to reflect on when
There were no Santas, and candy filled socks
But poor lowly shepherds watching their flocks
There was no facebook, youtube and twitter
When an angel appeared, a star gleamed and glittered
No songs about snowmen and reindeer that fly
But a Heavenly choir filled the night sky
No garlands or tinsel or Christmas tree lights
Decorated the stable that first silent night
The first Christmas present wasn’t wrapped with bright bows
But laid in a manager in swaddling clothes
The true meaning of Christmas we’ve seemed to forgotten
When God sent his Son, His only begotten
A gift sent from Heaven for us to receive
It’s ours for the taking, Accept and Believe
