It is not a Silent Night

In our Modern Age’s towns,

With the tinsel on the trees,

Twinkle lights hung all around;

 

Plastic Santas in the yards,

Christmas store sales every year,

Buying, selling, marrying, drinking

Mankind’s “Holiday cup of cheer”;

 

Drunk with feasting the people sleep,

With their Holiday lights so bright

Unknown to them within their slumber,

*God’s stars shine in the night;

 

The kids have cookies set aside

For Santa Claus to snack on,

And every television’s on

With Holiday distraction,

 

But the Christ Child waits out on the streets,

For His head a place to lay,

Just as His parents long ago

Had sought a place to stay;

 

For there wasn’t room at Mankind’s “Inn”,

And yet again – no room for Him,

Except in silent hearts who pray

For Jesus Christ, their hearts to stay.♥♥♥
