Christmas Greeting

Who was born that Christmas night?
Who was born in that stable?
Who was born under stars so bright?
Who was laid in that manger?

Was it Santa Claus that the angels sang
Their glorious song round about him?
Was it Santa Claus that was born to save
The weary world all around him?

Why did the angels sing that night?
Why did they visit the shepherds?
Why did the shepherds abandon their flocks
And run to the city to see him?

Was it Santa Claus that the angels sang
Their glorious song round about them?
Was it Santa Claus that was born to save
The weary world all around them?

Why did the Wise Men come to him?
Why did they travel that distance?
Why did they bring him such strange gifts?
Why gold and myrrh and incense?

Was it Santa Claus that the Wise Men came
To see with gifts and with worship?
Was it Santa Claus that was born to save
The weary world all around them?

Who was the Child that Mary wrapped
In the swaddling clothes she’d brought with her?
Who was the Child that was greatly blessed
By the elderly ones at Temple?

Was it Santa Claus that the angels sang
Their glorious song round about him?
Was it Santa Claus that was born to save
The weary world all around him?

No Santa Claus was not that babe
Who was treasured so much for His Being.
No Santa Claus was not yet born
for centuries after that evening.

It was Jesus Christ that the angels sang
Their glorious song round about Him!
It was Jesus Christ that was born to save
The weary world all around Him!
