The Singing Bauble

At first I wasn't sure what I was listening to, if anything at all 
 but as I moved a little closer, sure enough she was singing 
 The Christmas branches hummed and the tinsel drummed 
 and the figurines beneath the tree gave sighs of sweet relief 

At first I wasn't keen on a bauble that could sing a Xmas song 
 I had failed to read the fine print ,yes the box had clearly stated 
 "no batteries required" so I figured she was just a bauble 
 like the other ones I tucked away each year, oh but she was not 

Every time the spruce was lit she'd light up like a Christmas tree 
 and with her acapella voice she'd sing me my favorite song; 
 "Oh Silent Night" was pure delight to hear with Christlike cheer 
 each time my bauble-een sang up, it was a living Holy dream 

At first I wasn't sure I wanted a bauble that was so socialistic 
 but as she sang my worries disappeared as I turned idealistic 
 she brought me such joy and taught me how to be altruistic 
 in a world so mundane she was an exceptional bauble- Mystic 

So it was no surprise that at the end of the season I kept her 
 safe in my trinket box, where the rest of the year waited 
 for the uplift of Christmas again. He is my Lord and my Savior 
 he made the music and bauble, made me creative and free 

Today I am glad I own such a bauble, I listen without squabble 
 and thank God for creating her and I thank God that she's able.
