Twas the week before Christmas

And all through the house

We just got stirring, quiet as a mouse.

When to our amazement, the sun finally rose

The weather was cold, well, that’s how it goes.

Our relatives visits are planned for some days

We’ll see each other briefly, then part our ways,

A church service or two will remind us again

Behind all the tinsel there is something that’s plain.

Christ came as a baby to die in our place

Across the ages and down through space.

His birth would provide peace and joy

For every Mom and Dad, girl and boy.

Merry Christmas, tis the best news there is

Jesus come to earth, the story is His!
