It happened on a wintry night,
As the darkness seem to prolong;
I was blest with some new insight,
That was giving my heart a song.
As a special time of the year,
Putting the dark events to the side;
Not allowing terror cause fear,
As our faith makes us abide.
Terror would rather hide its face,
So no one is able to see;
Showing that they are in disgrace,
Concealed behind a false decree.
So many play into their hands,
Telling Christmas is not the way;
Happy holidays their demands,
As a winter festival day.
Children are now getting confused,
Boys are now having two fathers;
Their minds are becoming abused;
With girls are having two mothers.
Canonical values fade away,
As so many disregards Christ;
Biblical customs gone astray,
Worldly pleasures that have enticed.
For I can say I have no doubt,
Christians cannot just run and hide;
Be a bold witness and speak out,
Let others know what you abide.
Tell the others of the reason,
All about the miracle birth;
Why we celebrate the season,
And soon He will return to earth.
Do not let the worldly events,
Overshadow the hope and peace;
As well as love Jesus accents,
That possible aggressions cease.
