A Train For Christmas ~ by Gertrude Jefferies

Source: google.com via Gary on Pinterest


Four eyes bright with excitement,
Dirty faces pressed against the pane.
While wishing hard with all their might,
That for Christmas, they'd get a train.

They'd been to this window often,
Had counted the toys just for fun.
If only on Christmas morning
Under their tree, there would be just one.

He and little brother Bobbie
Came oft to this window to stare
At the toys piled in this window,
But knowing for them, none were there.

This year they won't have a Christmas,
This year there won't be any toys.
No candy canes or oranges
No pleasure for two little boys.

Dad lost his job this past winter,
He's been looking so hard each day,
And when he gets home he's so tired
He doesn't have too much to say.

We all try so hard to cheer him
But in his eye I saw a tear,
When he sadly told my momma,
For the boys, 'no Christmas this year.'

She smiled her lovely smile at him,
All the while holding back her tears,
Said,'God has never failed us yet,
As we've trusted Him through the years.'

Tonight, we'll hang our stockings up
We'll trust Him as we go to bed.
And when we arise in the morning,
We'll thank Him for our daily bread.

Two little boys in bed sleeping
Two parents on their knees in prayer:
Would He, by his Devine Power
For the boys, make Christmas this year?

They knew the real reason for Christmas,
They knew Baby Jesus was born,
That He was laid in a manger
For in the Inn, there was no room.

They knew it was mommy and daddy
With God's help, who made Christmas joy,
Who always managed somehow
To put stars in the eyes of their boys.

As they boys were sleeping soundly
As mom and dad on their knees prayed,
Outside in a world so busy
God's answer to prayer was being made.

Some kind neighbors who knew this fam'ly
Knew the dad had not yet found a job,
Silently crept to their doorstep
And began their assignment from God.

They worked silently and quickly
For they did not want to be seen
Making Christmas for their neighbors
Who trusted God meet their needs.

A turkey with all the trimmings
There were toys, too many to name.
And on top of all the presents,
Was a box... a set of new trains!

It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Jesus 12-22-11




To the tune of:
"It's Beginning To Look A Lot Like Christmas"

It's beginning to look a lot like Jesus,
everywhere we go.
Take a look at the Christmas birth. Seeing it once again -
it warms our hearts and makes our spirit's glow.
It's beginning to look a lot like Jesus,
miracles in store -
but the prettiest sight to see
is the baby that will be -
that we can't ignore.

With no pair of sandals and cross with no handles,
He carried it right up until -
the weight was tremendous, our actions horrendous -
He fell halfway up the hill.
The soldier men, so full of sin just wanted to torture and kill.

It's beginning to look a lot like Jesus,
as we knew before -
so Christians must always be, like the Jesus that we see -
in a world at war...

Then A Sweet Song Played ~ (A Christmas Song)



Then A Sweet Song Played

(A Christmas Song)
By Susan Y Nikitenko

I was thinking today;
With a grateful tear.
What gift I should give;
To Jesus this year.

Then a sweet song played;
Like a gentle kiss.
A Christmas carol;
And it went like this.

I could hear my heart;
I could hear it sing.
A Christmas carol;
Ring a ling a ling.

Ring a ling a ling,... a ling...., a ling....
Ring a ling a ling,... a ling,.... a ling....

Just give him your heart;
Wrap it with a bow.
Just give Him your song;
                                For He loves you so.    (yes He does)

Just give Him your time;
Sprinkle it with faith.
Just give Him your life;
Trusting in His grace.

Just give Him glory;
On His special day.
A merry Christmas;
                                     A happy birthday.  (Happy Birthday)


Ring a ling a ling,... a ling...., a ling....
Ring a ling a ling,... a ling,.... a ling....

Just give Him tomorrow;
Lay your burdens there.
Just trust in His promise;
                                     Remember He cares.   (He always will)

Just give Him your love;
Walking in His way.
Not just on Christmas ;
But every day.

Just give Him glory;
On His special day.
A merry Christmas;
                                     A happy birthday.  (Happy Birthday)


Ring a ling a ling,... a ling...., a ling....
Ring a ling a ling,... a ling,.... a ling....


Ring a ling a ling,... a ling...., a ling....
Ring a ling a ling,... a ling,.... a ling....
(phase out)

Mary's Song ~ M.S.Lowndes



Mary's Song

My soul doth magnify
And glory in the Lord
His lowly handmaiden
He has chosen over all
My spirit doth rejoice
Over God my saviour
For He has truly blessed me
And shown great favour...

Blessed and exalted
Is the fruit of her womb
The promise from ages past
Was coming very soon
I wonder if Mary
The servant of the Lord
Understood with depth
The magnitude of her call

The son she brought forth
Called Holy and righteous
Blessed Prince of Peace
Forever there to guide us
Did she know that Jesus
Is the name above all names?
That no one else can save us
And take away our shame

Did Mary know His future
And who He really was?
Did she know the price He'd pay
Upon the blood-stained cross?
Oh a mother’s heart must ache
To see her first born son
Hanging from a wooden cross
Rejected by everyone

Did she know that He would rise
And walk among them again?
To eat and drink and share with them
Until He would ascend
He left with us His Holy Spirit
Forever to dwell inside
I wonder if Mary ever knew
The significance of His life

Christmas Miracles



Christmas Miracles

White lace of winter;
Comes silently down.
Pine trees are decked with;
White all around.

Houses and fences;
Have wreaths and red bows.
Snowmen stand tall;
With coal eyes and a nose.

Pleasing the sweet sound;
The children at play.
Rolling and building;
In the snow all day.

Coa coa  and hot food;
Their mother prepared.
The house smells so good;
It's so pleasant there.

A blanket warming;
By the fireside.
The giggling children;
Cuddling side by side.

Christmas Eve, Joyful!
Fond memories made.
A home of comfort;
Christmas music played.

Evening has fallen;
The tree stands aglow.
Dancing to music;
A beautiful show.

By the fire side;
Their daddy tells them;
How Jesus was born;
And came to save them.

As they drift asleep;
He sings lovingly.
Of God's love for them;
Then sits silently.

The tree lights dancing;
A heart full of love;
A heart full of joy.
Blessings from above.

A loving family;
A quiver that's full.
The simple pleasures;
Christmas miracles.

"I love you daddy."
A voice could be heard.
Then he tucks them in; ~ shhhh
Then nothing else stirs.

Psalms 127:5
 Happy is the man that hath his quiver full of them: they shall not be ashamed, but they shall speak with the enemies in the gate.

A Christmas Gift From Heaven




A Christmas Gift From Heaven

------
You are a Christmas Gift From heaven;
You are loves open door.
Those that receive and a believe will find;
Your  love forevermore.

 You are greater than our greatest enemy.
You are greater than all the great galaxies.
Yet your love still flows to a very small world;
And you've given of yourself, though you are Lord.

Your voice can be gentle in the morning light;
Or loud  like a storm on a thundering night.
Your goodness  like a river flows freely to all;
And your mercy like snowflakes on mankind falls.

More than wonderful are all your miracles;
And all your ways are musically lyrical.
Songs are written that praise and proclaim your name;
And all those that find you are never the same.   

------- 
You are a Christmas gift from heaven;
A wondrous shining light.
That leads a lowly sinner in the way;
When all he knows is night.

You were the greatest gift ,born on Christmas day;
And the answer, for those seeking the only way.
Though stars light the sky with a beautiful  wave.
You are the beautiful  light, seeking to save.

A Christmas gift from heaven given long ago;
 A gift that keeps on giving from heavens flow.
A small package wrapped in human flesh divine;
You became salvation for all mankind.

------
You are a Christmas gift from heaven;
The holy lamb of grace;
That holds the unloved and broken;

In your healing embrace.

No expression of love has ever been shown.
No mercy or goodness, so true,  ever known.
Than the day you came to earth and left your throne;
Born to die, one day for those undone if alone.

You are a Christmas miracle from heaven;
Without you we could never be forgiven.
Your hand is reaching out to all, while you call;
Your love is drifting down a gentle snowfall.

--------
You are the gift that's ever living;
A peace that fills the soul.
You are the only gift that ever;
Will fill the empty hole.

Though our sins be many and spots untold;
When one looks to you Lord, He will behold.
A life that's been washed much whiter than snow;
A forgiveness from heaven, just waiting to know.

A Christmas gift from heaven given long ago;
 A gift that keeps on giving from heavens flow.
A small package wrapped in human flesh divine;
You became salvation for all mankind.

Manger Maker ~ Tim Neaverth




Manger Maker


I watched the manger maker, 
And then I asked him why 
The baby Jesus he was making 
Had a tear in his eye.
He looked up at me with sadness, 
His face was hard as stone 
And answered me, seriously, 
And in a petulant tone.

"Many children around our world, 
Go to sleep at night in fear. 
Alone they lie in the darkness 
With not a parent near.

"Their stomachs remain empty, 
And diseases they must endure, 
While only those who are affluent 
Have the needed cure.

"If this baby Jesus was able, 
I think he would proclaim 
To the adults around our world, 
They have caused God's children pain.

"It is the little ones who suffer, 
The innocent who pay 
For the greed and hate the adults bring 
Into their world each day."

I turned from him and headed home, 
His words I knew were true. 
I realized, but, was not surprised, 
I had a tear in my eye too.

--Tim Neaverth
