Christmas I

The bustle of the Christmas shops
The music blaring loud

The bustle of the Christmas shops
The music blaring loud
I seem to miss the Saviour
In that bright and motley crowd


The prattle of the little tongues
Of all they hope to get
I find the biggest gift of all
Not mentioned - they forget!


The happy songs at Christmas time
Of sleighs and silver bells
I long to hear of Bethlehem
The songs we knew so well


O Saviour, must Thou stand aside
In all this bright array?
So tragically rejected
A meaningless display!


Oh sing thy joyous praise to God
And worship Him anew
Remembering His Birth, His Death
Salvation brought to you!
