Silence The Night!

Silent Night used with permission IBible Verses

Silence the children
from singing the truth
omitting the words
so not to suffer reproof.

Don’t want to offend,
those who don’t believe
and for those who do . . .
this message receive.

Don’t sing of a Holy Infant,
or of a Virgin’s Birth
don’t tell us of a Savior
who came to this earth.

We don’t want to hear it,
don’t push it in our face
this gift that you call . . .
sweet saving grace.

Silence the Children,
silence the Pure Light
silence the Christ Jesus
silence the . . . Night!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

This is in response to an article I read
about how a school in Long Island
had the children sing a new version
of one of the most precious Christmas Hymns
“Silent Night”

Christmas Time ~

Christmas time
is in the air
the perfect time
to give and share . . .

There are presents to buy
gift-wrap and tie
lots of good goodies to make
in hot ovens, they bake

Need to go out and get a tree
put up the lights for all to see
cards to address and send in the mail
gotta rush to the mall, for yet another big sale

With all the planning, that still needs to be done
this indeed is the season, which keeps us on the run
for there’s still the Christmas play and costumes to sew
by now, our heads are spinning and our tempers start to blow

Yes, this is the perfect time of sharing and giving
but, sometimes we find our attitudes quite unforgiving
for we forget of the true meaning and the glory it holds
the birth of our precious Savior so long ago foretold

In all of the rush of getting ready for the season
we often don’t have time to reflect on the true reason
we’re too busy, too hassled, too tired, and yes too broke
making it  hard to see past all the holiday mirrors and smoke.

We put lights up on our home and our Christmas tree
but, instead let the light of Christ in you, be what others see
we give presents and gifts to those that we love
but, instead let us give the free Gift, that comes from above

We bake cookies, pies and all kinds of other sweets
but, instead give your passion for the Lord, to those you meet
for this is the season that is to be filled with complete joy
and praise for the gift God gave us . . . Mary’s sweet baby boy

So if you want to make a difference this year
forget about the sales and the holiday cheer
and remember the real reason
behind the Christmas season.

~ Merry CHRISTmas ~
