Christmas II

Sometimes I wonder sadly why
      The people do not care

Sometimes I wonder sadly why
      The people do not care
That God Himself was sacrificed
      Our punishment to bear


It seems so strange at Christmas time
      With all the peoples' fun
They don't remember Bethlehem
      The Offer of God's Son


It seems as if our Christmas
      Is just a festive time
Of presents, songs and comic tunes
      Of Him hardly a sign


Today I wonder sadly
      If the Master should apear
In all our preparations
      Would we cry in shame and fear?


Oh let us think of Bethlehem
      With awe of Calvary
Of God who sent His Precious Son
      To die for you and me
