I wish I could sit and
talk with Jesus
Since it's Christmas time
So I could ask about
His miraculous birth
Behind the inn at Bethlehem
so many things I ponder
As the years accumulate
And I read the Biblical
I sit and contemplate
If I could only talk with
On this Holy night
Did You name the star
of Bethlehem that shone so bright?
And did You help decide
the Virgin Mary
would be the one to give You birth?
Was it warm enough in
when You were born on earth?
Did leaving the glories
make Your heart grieve?
And did You know ahead
that You would have to leave?
Were You a baby up in
or were You God's fully grown Son
When the creation of
as we know it was begun?
Did our Father up in Heaven
smile with contentment too
As the multitude of angels sang "Glory
to God," for You?
Did He long to hold You
in His arms
When Joseph held You first instead?
When did You know You'd
be our sacrifice
With Your precious arms outspread?
As I drew aside this Christmas
season, I realized anew
That these questions need no answers because
I truly do love You.
For I believe You left
the portals of Heaven far behind
Condescending to birth in human form to
give Your life for mankind.
I believe You're the second
Person of the Trinity
And had a mission to fulfill, so we could
As You obeyed Your Father's
And I'm convinced the time is fast approaching
When we'll behold Your
face and every knee
Shall finally bow acknowledging Your Deity
And as I read the Christmas
story to my family once again,
They'll see You're not just the Holy Christ
But the Reigning King
of all men.
So Lord Jesus, I'll be
For blessing me and mine all year,
And continue glorifying You
As Christmas Day draws near.
For I find I cannot share
this day with gifts and love of family
Until I first give thanks to You again
for giving Yourself for me.
