Merry Christmas

 

Merry Christmas is wonderful to proclaim,
 

Especially because it holds His dear name;
 

Removing His name is foolish & absurd,
 

Reducing the worth, so it's not a word!
 

Yielded to the perfection in God's plan,
 

Christ laid in a manger when He became a man,
 

He was sent from Heaven to be our Lord,
 

Redeeming our life from sin forever more.
 

It's Christ who's the reason Christmas began,
 

Salvation He provides to the soul of man;
 

Taking Christ from Christmas would make a mess,
 

Meaning there'd be no path to righteousness.
 

And He was born as our Redeemer from Heaven,
 

So we'll say "Merry Christmas!" as long as we're living!
