All Over the World At Christmas

“10 When they saw the star, they were overjoyed. 11 On coming to the house, they saw the child with his mother Mary, and they bowed down and worshiped him. Then they opened their treasures and presented him with gifts of gold, frankincense and myrrh. 12 And having been warned in a dream not to go back to Herod, they returned to their country by another route.” Matt 2:10-12 NIV All Over the World At Christmas Gifts are exchanged. Some boxes are filled with luxuries; Usually small and for most outranged. They are wrapped in pretty paper, With decorative bows and ornaments; Placed at the base of Christmas trees, Laden with decorations of adornment. These gifts are merely tokens Of our love for relatives and friends; Chosen hopefully with much care— Happiness to potentially send. This tradition came from Bethlehem, So many, many years ago, When three wise men worshiped Jesus; Precious gifts the Christ-child to bestow. When we make God part of the giving, And acknowledge His great gift to us. We give praise to Him for the Christ-child— His gift of love so bounteous. God’s love is the greatest gift That we can ever receive. Let’s sing to Him Christmas carols of praise— A small token of thanks to conceive. All Over the World At Christmas The atmosphere’s filled with good cheer. Merrymaking and joy abound— Peace on earth’s spoken everywhere. Folk go to church to celebrate And sing praises to the Lord above; Show their appreciation of others, With gifts exchanged through God’s love. © Copyright 2012 Maureen LeFanue www.maureenlefanue.com
