Well it is not about the presents, it is not about the tree



It is not about you and it is not about me



It is not about what you think or what you have been told 



Christmas is all about a baby who was born long ago…



 



They laid him in a manger with a star overhead



But it is not about the star and it is not about the bed



The wise men traveled far and the cattle they did lo



But it is not about the wise men or how far they had to go



 



Joseph was the father and the mother's name was Mary 



It wasn't about the parents, it was about the baby that she carried



Well the angels sent the shepherds to witness this great joy



But it is not about the shepherds, it is all about the baby boy



 



Well it is all about the baby who was sent from up above



It was the greatest gift from God, it is how he showed his love



God sent him here to teach us and he sent him here to die



To take the wages of our sins for both you and I…



 



Now they named this baby Jesus, we all should celebrate his birth



The greatest thing that ever happened is when he came to earth.



So in this Christmas season let us all spread God's love



And get down on our knees and thank God he sent Jesus down from up above.
